Staff at the Recreation Center were alarmed to discover a severly cracked window on the second story of the Center at 12 p.m. on Sept. 16, the day after Boise State faced
Miami (OH).

“The window appears to have been struck by a BB gun, though no actual bullet has been found,” said Lisa Stuppy, Director of the Recr Center.

“The window has been taped for the safety of those that use the facility and those that park bicycles under the broken window. We have moved some equipment away from the area, but all equipment is still fully available,” Stuppy said.

The incident is believed to have occurred between the hours of 1 p.m. Saturday Sept. 15 and 12 p.m. the next day. The Rec closed early Saturday due to the game and no staff was on the premise to witness the act.

“It is not clear whether a bullet struck the window, or some other object such as a football,” said Lieutenant Tony Plott, campus officer with the Boise Police Department (BPD).

The broken window appears to be an isolated incidence, which would lead Plott to believe it was not an act of
vandalism.

Idaho penalties for vandalism can include up to five years in prison and a $1,000 fine.

Those with any information regarding the damaged window can contact security at Boise State at 426-1453, or BPD non-emergency line at 377-6790.
