CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. -- Three people have been arrested in Washington County after a weekend burglary spree that targeted a snack shack at Cambridge Central School.

According to police in the village, thousands of dollars of damage was done to the snack shack that benefits the Cambridge Central School's Booster Club.

"We had to start from scratch to get the snack shack up and running," said school board member Greg Toleman.

Toleman and a number of volunteers, including his 8-year-old son Zachary, worked on getting the snack shack back to normal Monday.

"They took paper products and soda and candy and everything," said Toleman.

Cambridge and Greenwich police Chief Greg Bell got the call about the vandalism Sunday morning.

"There are volunteers that do this for the football program and they virtually shut them down Sunday," said Bell.

Chief Bell says soon after that call he got a call from NY State Police about a nearby burglary of several bikes.  Through a joint investigation, they arrested three teenagers including 19-year-old NaCarlos Horsey of Cambridge. He now faces two charges of burglary in the third-degree. The identities of the two juveniles have not been released.

"I believe what transpired over the weekend and the rampage of them destroying them - we've got them at this point," said Bell.

Even though the alleged vandals are caught, the cleanup still continues, and Toleman says he hopes Zachary takes something away from this whole experience.

"He came down and is trying to help everyone.  It is a lesson for him to see the kinds of things people do out there. He realizes he will never do anything like that," said Toleman.

The volunteers are hoping to get the snack shack back open for the weekend homecoming game.
