The Bel Air High School stadium was vandalized Saturday night, leaving several overturned trash cans and light graffiti on the premises as the only signs of the incident early Sunday afternoon.
“No distinct markings or words” were formed by the graffiti, according to Leo Matrangola, Bel Air Chief of Police. The words “C Milton” were possibly a part of the graffiti, although “they were not spelled out,” Matrangola said.
The incident, which was discovered just before 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon, is most likely the work of “kids messing around,” according to Matrangola. Law enforcement have not identified any suspects, but there is no suspicion of gang involvement at this point in time.
A reward is being offered by Metro Crime Stoppers for successful tips regarding suspects in the vandalism. Matrangola did not have the amount of the reward immediately available.
