NETTLETON, Miss. (WTVA) - Nettleton police are searching for the people responsible for the vandalism of United Furniture.

Nettleton Police Chief Gary Monaghan says the incident happened Saturday night at the plant.

“It was just a mess. They had twenty vending machines, and they were beaten up pretty bad, and they just took all the money out and demolished the machines,” Police Chief Gary Monaghan said.

He says money was taken from the machines. They think the person was trying to destroy them on purpose. They are not sure how much, but they think whoever did this got away with a lot.

The police chief says the vandals also stole three aluminum ramps. No furniture was confirmed stolen.

Police did find fingerprints and say they have some leads, but hope people with knowledge can come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Nettleton police at 662-963-2605.
