A $3,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for more than $10,000 in damage done to the new Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house on Western Street.
Vandals struck sometime over the weekend, smashing glass doors, breaking windows, punching holes in drywall and “basically making a big mess,” Chris Reigelman, a representative of the Ruston Pi Kappa Alpha Housing Corporation, said Monday.
The facility is being rebuilt following a fire in May 2012 that destroyed the old structure.
Storms will have to be bad Saturday to rain on the parade of Choudrant’s annual Saturday in the Park, said to event organizers.
This year’s event will, for the first time, feature a schoolwide alumni gathering for Choudrant High School.
Jeremy DuBose, one of the founding members of the CHS Alumni Association, said after the previously formed alumni group disbanded, he and fellow alumni Burt Pipes decided to form a group to help connect alumni and the school.
“There’s going to be a school tour, along with a silent auction,” DuBose said. “And, we’re going to have a business meeting.”
