According to Danville Police, officers responded to reports of suspicious activity at the bingo hall, where kids were reported being seen around the structure, and later glass was heard breaking.

When officers arrived, they found four juveniles — two were 10-year-olds, a 14-year-old and 16-year-old — inside the building who were covered in fire extinguisher powder. 

Upon further investigation, officers discovered the juveniles had destroyed televisions, broken windows, and discharged fire extinguishers throughout the building and on each other. They allegedly had thrown the empty fire extinguishers through plate glass windows inside the building, destroyed bathroom sinks, toilets and urinals, as well as created other damage. 

According to the release, all four juveniles were released to their parents and will be charged with third-degree burglary and first-degree criminal mischief. 

Sergeant Josh Faulkner is leading the investigation.
