PARIS, Maine — Three local juveniles are charged with damaging fencing and buildings at the Dennis Rugg Athletic Complex on Oxford Street last weekend, police said.

Paris police Lt. Michael Dailey said three boys started up a front-end loader in a nearby sandpit and drove it to the athletic field between 9 p.m. and midnight Saturday. The loader belongs to Donald Mason.

He said they used it to get into the snack shack.

“They actually used the loader to push part of the building in,” he said. They also damaged a maintenance building, a storage trailer and fencing.

The boys have been charged with aggravated criminal mischief, Dailey said.
