Police Seek Witnesses After Portable Toilets Burned To The Ground at North 40 Fields
Two portable toilets at the North 40 fields have been burned to the ground, and Park City Police are looking for answers.
According to the Park City Police, school staff discovered what was left of the port-a-potties at the North 40 fields by Treasure Mountain Junior High School on Monday.
Police Captain Phil Kirk said the timeline of events is not clear at the moment, partly because school was not in session until this week and the fields were being used infrequently.
“They had been totally burned to the ground, hardly anything left of these plastic portable toilets,” he said. “They hadn’t been seen for several weeks since they had been last worked on. The school authorities thought they were just missing, then they examined the area more carefully and realized they had been burnt to the ground.”
According to Kirk, the toilets were not in storage and were functioning at the time they were destroyed. Damage is estimated to be around $2,000.
He added with no hard evidence or suspects as of Tuesday, the department faces an uphill climb for the rest of the investigation.
“We don’t have any suspects at this time, but we just started the investigation yesterday,” said Kirk. “Unless somebody as a witness comes forward, it probably is going to be difficult to solve this one.”
Anyone with information on the case is encouraged to call the Park City Police Department’s dispatch at 435-615-5500.
