Hermiston police reported that the Eastern Oregon Trade and Events Center was vandalized over the weekend.
No suspects have been identified as vandals caused about $2,950 of damage to property and equipment.
Police received a call from EOTEC vice-chairman Dan Dorran on April 30 around 11 a.m., reporting that someone had flipped an aluminum bleacher against a fence and climbed into a secure storage lot belonging to the Umatilla County Fair. While inside the lot, the vandal(s) started a John Deere Gator and tore up the gravel in the storage lot. They caused $1,800 worth of damage at the lot, about $750 worth of damage to the bleachers and $400 worth of damage to the Gator.
Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said no cameras are in the area, so the police do not yet have a way to identify the suspect.
