POST FALLS, Idaho — Vandals who allegedly broke into the Post Falls Boys & Girls Club over the weekend left behind thousands of dollars in damage.
A Facebook post from the Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County says that the vandals stole two Macbook computers, a camera and an Xbox, and damaged the walls and pool and ping pong tables. The Coeur d’Alene Press reports that the damage also included ruined art supplies and obscene messages on the walls in several rooms.
As a result of more than $3,000 in damage, the club closed on Monday to clean up and ensure safety for children. It has since reopened.
Ryan Davis, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County, told The Coeur d’Alene Press that they are working with neighboring facilities to view security footage that could identify the suspects.
"You do feel a little bit violated when these kind of things happen. This is supposed to be a safe, fun place," Davis said. "There are some things that we're going to have to replace that we're going 'Ok, we're going to have to figure out where to find the money for that.'"
