Flooding At Bonanzaville Last Month Was Likely Human Error, Not Vandalism
Bonanzaville Executive Director Brenda Warren calls the findings "inconclusive"
WEST FARGO, ND — Flooding at Bonanzaville in West Fargo might not have been vandalism but rather human error according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.
Detective Lance Kitzan says all their evidence leans toward human error but he can’t rule that out 100 percent either.
City records show water was turned on inside the South Pleasant Church December 24th for a Christmas Eve celebration.
It was not shut off until January 6th when a Bonanzaville employee discovered water pouring from the two outdoor spigots.
Kitzan says it’s possible they were left open by accident when the building was winterized in October.
Bonanzaville Executive Director Brenda Warren calls the findings “inconclusive” and agrees the reason for the flooding may never be determined.
