Vandals damage Anderson's Wigwam

ANDERSON – Central Indiana police say vandals who broke into Anderson’s historic Wigwam Complex smashed a window and set off several fire extinguishers inside the building.

Police said they were alerted to Saturday’s break-in when the haze created by the discharge of the fire extinguishers set off the shuttered building’s fire alarm.

Anderson Police Department Sgt. Freddie Tevis told The Herald-Bulletin (http://bit.ly/156q50Z ) there were signs of vandalism inside the building, but the 9,000-seat gymnasium was not damaged.

The Wigwam was built in 1962 and is the world’s second-largest high school basketball venue, ranked behind the Fieldhouse in New Castle.

School officials closed the building in 2011 as part of a wider budget-cutting plan that included cutting 65 teachers’ jobs.
