Old Indianapolis Fire Headquarters and 2 vehicles parked nearby – vandalized
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 14, 2016)–The recently vacated Indianapolis Fire Department headquarters sustained some extensive vandalism Saturday morning. Two cars parked nearby were heavily vandalized as well.
Metro police were called 555 North New Jersey Street around 10 a.m. Investigators found someone used an unknown object to break out several windows and damage a door.
The fire department just moved to their new headquarters at 10th Street and East Street two weeks ago. It was 37 years ago that the Indianapolis Fire Department made the New Jersey Street building their previous headquarters. The vacated site will become part of the Massachusetts Avenue redevelopment area.
Minutes after taking the report on the old fire building, police found two cars parked nearby that were also vandalized. A 2013 Infiniti had its wiper arms and license plate broken off. The second vehicle, a 2015 Toyota Corolla, had the license plate ripped off, both side view mirrors damaged, the passenger side windshield wiper broken off, and dents in the hood.
