Police: Man confesses to damaging Red Land High School athletic fields
Fairview Township Police say a man has confessed to doing several thousand dollars' worth of damage to Red Land High School property last month.
Security footage from the school shows the vandals driving over athletic fields and causing significant damage to them, according to police.
Charges have not yet been filed against the 25-year-old man, according to Fairview Township Police Chief Jason Loper. Police received tips that pointed them to the man, Loper said.
The incident happened Friday, Dec. 18, between 9 p.m. and midnight, police said.
The primary offender, police said, was a person driving a dark green or gray pickup truck with riveted fender flares.
The truck, while turfing the athletic fields, became mired at one point, and at least three other vehicles arrived to help free it, according to to a police news release issued Monday.
