Police are still trying to figure out who damaged a concession stand at Rochester High School and they’re looking for the public’s help.

Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers says freezers, electronics, vending machines and monitors were hit late last month, sometime between the 24th and 28th. It likely caused around $13,000 in damage.

Anyone with anonymous information leading to an arrest could be eligible for a one-thousand dollar reward. Call Crimestoppers at 788-8427, submit tips via text message by typing TIP-672 plus a message and sending to CRIMES, or head online to www.cash4tips.us.
