Event Tent Damaged By Vandals

The OPP are looking for vandals who destroyed a large event tent in Petrolia on the weekend.

Police say the tent was set up in the park near Petrolia Line and England St., commonly known as “the flats.”

They say between 10pm Saturday and 9:30am Sunday, suspects cut holes in the tent, destroying 12 panels.

About 150 chairs were tossed around.

The cost of repairing the tent is estimated at $20,000.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lambton OPP or Crime Stoppers.
