Two Liberty Hill men charged with burglary of concession stand

Liberty Hill police arrested two local men about 1:20 a.m. Wednesdayand charged them with the burglary of a concession stand at Panther Stadium.

Ryan Andrus, 18, and Samuel Foster, 20, both of Liberty Hill, were arrested and booked into the Williamson County Jail on the charge of burglary of a building.

Liberty Hill Police Chief Randy Williams said Officer Michael Manis was on patrol near the stadium when he observed something unusual about the concession stand and the surrounding chain link fence.

Upon closer inspection, he observed that the concession stand near the entrance to the stadium, which is operated by the Liberty Hill All Sports Booster Club, had been forcibly entered.

Williams said the officer exited his vehicle for a closer look and saw the two men walking nearby.

Williams said food items and can soft drinks were reported missing from the concession stand, but he did not yet have a value on the merchandise taken.

In recent weeks, police have increased the frequency of patrols around school facilities as a result of some incidents of vandalism. Williams said the football stadium press box had sustained damage to windows and the school district’s bus barn had also been burglarized.
