Thousands in damages done to equipment at gravel pit

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The owner of Summit Construction, John Beaty, is offering a reward for anyone who can help him find the person responsible for vandalizing equipment at his business's gravel lot just down KAIT road.

"I want to find out who did it and I want them to pay for it," said Beaty.

Two of Beaty's machines were damaged. There was broken glass, busted doors and parts of the equipment broken off.

"I think they were trying to get into the machine and it was locked up," he said. "They used the excavator to tear the screens and break the glass."

Beaty anticipates the price of the damage could be anywhere between $25,000 to $50,000.

He said he's offering $1,000 to anyone who can give information as to who was responsible. If the trespassers are convicted, he'll give up to $5,000.

If you have any information, contact John Beaty at 870 926-7512.
