MONROE — Four people — three teens and an adult — were arrested for investigation of causing extensive damage to the turf at the Monroe High School stadium overnight.
Monroe police officers stopped a Chevrolet Blazer in the high school parking lot around 11 p.m. Wednesday. Officers noticed the back half of the SUV covered in what appeared to be synthetic field turf.
Police found that a section of chain-link fence had been damaged as well as a portion of the field, which had fresh black tire marks stretching from the end zone to the 40 yard line.
The driver, 17, and two passengers, both 17, were taken to the Denney Juvenile Justice Center. The adult, a 24-year-old Sedro Woolley man, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail. All are under investigation for malicious mischief.
A damage estimate is pending, but it’s expected to cost several thousand dollars to fix, Monroe police spokeswoman Debbie Willis said.
