BROWNWOOD, Texas -

The Brownwood Police Department is investigating a string of burglaries at Gordon Wood Stadium.

Nearly $2,000 was stolen last month, and there is thousands in damage from a burglary this week.

Late Wednesday night is when the most recent burglary took place.

Police said a metal window to the concession stand was pried open.

"They've opened some cabinets, as far as I know, as far as the investigation goes, there's nothing that's been reported missing, but again, it's still under investigation. There's been damage done," said Officer Chandra Means. 

"These are brand new facilities that we just built. I think it's going to be close to $3,000 if we have to replace those gates and get that back up to normal," said Superintendent Reese Blincoe.

Unfortunately, the money to repair damages had to be taken from the Band Booster Club funds.

"There's thousands of people here every weekend, so as far as pinning a finger print, it could be anybody's, or foot prints or anything. It makes it hard to investigate," said Means.

Officer Means said the investigation is still ongoing, but if anyone has any information to contact the Brownwood Police Department.
