Auburn Police say four boys with fireworks caused a series of small fires that left behind $6,000 in damage to the Auburn High School Stadium on Dec. 23, 2021.
According to police, the boys set off fireworks inside the stadium’s concession stand with the stove top turned on.
“[The four] suspects have been identified, and one of our detectives will be filing charges,” Kolby Crossley, public information officer for the Auburn Police Department, said Tuesday afternoon.
What those charges will be is as yet unknown. Two of the boys on the hot seat are 15 years old, and the other two are ages 16 and 17. Because they are juveniles, their names will not be released.
Although the quartet set off the fireworks on Dec. 23, Crossley said, the damage wasn’t discovered until some time later.
