Lebanon police investigated a report of vandalism at the Storrs Hill Ski Area on Wednesday evening. At around 8:00, officers responded to the ski area after a report of 4-5 males kicking doors and breaking windows at various buildings on the grounds.
Officers located five suspects and arrested two on unrelated charges, issued a court summons to a third, and released the other two without being charged. 19-year old Jordan Whiting of Enfield and a 16 year old male juvenile were arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of Alcohol. 24-year old James Lussier of Enfield was issued a summons to appear in court on the charge of having an Open Container of Alcohol.
All three were released and will appear in court on June 27th in the 2nd Circuit Court, Lebanon District Division. Three of the buildings, including the ski jump judging tower, were damaged and the cost of the damage is not yet known at this time.
Curiously enough, logging operations are currently underway at the ski area, which has made the vandalized buildings more visible and in plain sight, which could have acted as a deterrent.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Lebanon Police Department at 603-448-1212.
