Lumberton Baseball Fields get vandalized during Christmas break


UPDATE BASEBALL FIELDS: According to Lumberton PD Chief Danny Sulins, two freshmen are responsible for the damage and vandalization of the Lumberton ISD baseball fields.

Detective Sergeant Kenneth Powell and Officer Wade Hendrix identified the suspects with the assistance from the school administrators.

Two juvenile freshmen were identified in the surveillance videos from the school grounds and was charged with criminal mischief and burglary of a habitation. The two were booked in at the Hardin County juvenile corrections facility at the Hardin County Courthouse in Kountze.

According to the Lumberton Raider Baseball Facebook page on Dec. 26. a school administrator discovered several areas vandalized at the baseball fields. The school has cameras and are playing back to find those who are responsible for these actions. The coaches, students, and others have spent countless hours working to improve the fields and are hoping to catch those responsible and fix the damages. I will update this post if volunteers are needed or the subject(s) are found. Lumberton PD Chief Danny Sullins tells the Brooks Report that there was approximately $6,000 in damage done to the new batting cages.
