MANTECA, Calif. (KTXL) — Police are trying to identify three people who are accused of vandalizing a Bass Pro Shops in Manteca.
Manteca police said officers were dispatched to the store on Friday before 10 p.m. in response to an alarm.
When officers arrived, police said they searched the building, but no one was located inside. Police said officers reviewed surveillance footage and were able to pull stills from the video. The stills, which were posted to the police department’s Facebook page show three people walking around the store.
“It’s believed that the three individuals might have hid within Bass Pro until the store closed and then after was closed and locked up. Then they came from their hiding spots and got into the remainder of the building,” Sgt. Ian Osborn said.
Police said it so far appears the three vandals did not steal anything.
“It appears the three subjects had taken one of the fire extinguishers off the wall and sprayed it into both the larger aquarium tank as well as the small pond,” Osborn said.
The estimated cost of the damage is not known.
For anyone with information regarding their identities, police ask to call the department’s dispatch number at 209-456-8101.
