Vandals Cause Several Thousand In Damage To Garden City Menards: UPDATE Arrests Made
02/04/2013

Wednesday Feb. 6th

Garden City police have arrested four teenage boys in connection with vandalizing the new Menards store.  The store was still under construction.

 
Police say two 13 year olds, a 14 year old and a 17 year old rode their bikes inside the store and decided to use a forklift to spill paint and cause other damage inside of the building.
 
The teens are currently being held in the Southwest Kansas Juvenile Detention Center on allegations of burglary, felony criminal damage to property, arson and conspiracy.
 
Contractors are still in the process of  determining whether the paint can be removed from the concrete.  They said two support beams will have to be replaced after being damaged by the forklifts.
 
The loss is undetermined at this point.

 

The new Garden City Menards store was damaged by vandals late Saturday into early Sunday.

 
Police say someone entered the business through an unlocked door.
 
The suspect or suspects used two forklifts to spill 86 five gallon and 11 one gallon containers of industrial paint throughout the store.
 
Approximately 25,000 square feet of concrete flooring was damaged in the incident.
 
The suspects also lit cardboard boxes on fire inside the store.
 
Damage is estimated at $30,000 to $300,000.  

The store was set to open in April. 

Anyone with information about the crime can contact the Garden City Police Department at 620-276-1300.
 
If they wish to remain anonymous, they can contact Crime Stoppers at 620-275-7807, or text GCTIP and their tip information to 847411 (Tip411).
