Weekend Burglary, Vandalism at Youth Park: Florissant Commmunity Asked to Help Identify Perpetrators

The Florissant Area Athletic Association is asking for the community's help in catching the person or people who broke into the park late Friday or early Saturday morning.

A local youth sports organization is asking for your help to bring a criminal to justice. The Florissant Area Athletic Association’s (FAAA’s) park was broken into and vandalized late last week, according to the association’s VP of Special Projects and executive board member Matthew Schuler.

“We are trying to spread the word to see if we can catch the person or persons,” Schuler said. “They broke into the north side of the main building  between 8:45 p.m. Friday and 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning.”

Schuler said the burglars forced their way into the office and concession stand doors by prying locks and damaging door jams.

“They also kicked in a door to another door in the concession stand area to gain access,” he said. “The only thing they were able to get away with was a yellow tool box with a black lid which held some park tools.”

The St. Louis County Police had the crime scene unit at the scene, but Schuler said that fingerprints would only offer limited assistance since it’s a business and there are many prints thre.

“Some of the locks and doors that were broken into are secure by commercial grade deadbolts and expensive commercial combination locks,” Schuler said. “The police were able to geta  good foot print from the door that was kicked in. All of this was a forced entrance on the north side of the main building.”

If you have information about this crime, please contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 314-889-2345.
