A man remains in custody after being held accountable for an incident involving the vandalism of an Arizona airport causing them to halt operations for a full day in order to administer repairs.
On Friday, the Glendale Municipal Airport was the site of an incident involving damage to an entire floor of their building. The airport serves as an institution that provides instruction to new pilots and contains technological devices that allow the trainees to participate in mock-flights for practice.
The reported cause of the catastrophe appeared to be a suspect who allegedly broke several windows with a hammer before bringing a hose inside of the building and allowing it to flood the interior of the ground floor. The building was unable to reopen for 24 hours due to the amount of clean-up and dry time needed to restore it, and it reportedly cost $70,000 to complete the job.
