Vandals strike Penn Center

Flickr User deltaMike

The Penn Center was the victim of over $100,000 in damage.

The Penn Center, a historical site and one of the oldest schools created for freed slaves, discovered the damage on Monday morning.  The damage was caused to air conditioning systems at a construction project.  

Vandalism and theft of air conditioning units has increased in the past years as the cost of metal has risen. 

Previously, air conditioners were stolen from a Habitat for Humanity build site located near the Penn Center.
