Big Spring Police Association Building Vandalized

BIG SPRING - Over the weekend some vandals went inside the Big Spring Police Association Building and stole lots of items and broke many things that are needed in their annual haunted Halloween house.

They estimate the total in damages add up to more than $3,000.

"It's just so disheartening, everyone just wanted to break down and cry because they were in such disbelief that something like this would happen," Lesa Coskey, Secretary of the Big Spring Police Association, said.

A day of decorating and putting things together for the Halloween Haunted House, turned out to be a day of picking up the mess left by some vandals who not only broke Halloween items but also stole most of the items that were still in their original packaging.

Coskey tells NewsWest 9 she was in shock when she walked in the door.

"Unfortunately our building was burglarized and all of our mechanical material and costumes that we had for extra volunteers that wanted to come out and help were all taken. Some of our animatronics were vandalized to the point they are unusable," Coskey said.

She says the vandals not only stole and broke some items but they went as far as breaking the heads off of dolls and even urinating on some of them.

"Unfortunately, it's very sad to say that they were very immature and urinated in a lot of our items that will have to be discarded because there is just no way to clean that," Coskey said.

Coskey mentioned the Halloween event is their biggest money maker. Last year, they made over $3,200 and all of the proceeds go to fund the Blue Santa Program. Without those funds, many children will be left without a Christmas this year.

"With this event occurring, it is very disheartening it doesn't look like it's possible, unless we can pull this Halloween haunted house off," Coskey said.

NewsWest 9 spoke to Sergeant Tony Everett with the Big Spring Police Department and he said that they are currently investigating the case.

If you would like to help the Big Spring Police Association make the event happen, you can do so by donating Halloween decorations or any monetary donations. For more information on how you can donate you can call Lesa Coskey at (432) 213-3090 or Jaime Williams at (432) 425-0346.
