Vandalized roof leads to flooded ballroom at Jonesboro hotel

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A leaky roof led to a vandalism investigation at a Jonesboro hotel.

According to an incident report with the Jonesboro Police Department, the owner of the Fairbridge Inn discovered a mess in the ballroom over the weekend.

The owner told police a severe leak damaged the ceiling and floor of the hotel's ballroom.

The owner said while searching for the cause, workers discovered several long cuts to the rubber roof. The incident report stated the cuts "were very clean and curved" as if they were done on purpose.
