PROVO, Utah— A man was arrested after breaking into the Miller Park Softball Complex on Brigham Young University Campus, vandalizing the building, and stealing items from the lockers according to court documents.

On April 2, custodial employees reported to police that the softball locker room “had been vandalized by someone who had used a marker to write on the walls, doors, and pictures hanging in the hallway.”

When police arrived they found a man laying on the couch of the women’s locker room. The man was later identified as Andres Estrada.

Estrada is “not affiliated with BYU” and there was no valid reason for him to be in that area of campus.

Estrada illegally entered the Miller Park Softball Complex building which can only be entered with a key or card access for authorized personnel.

Estrada spoke with police and told them he had been roaming the campus near the complex and found a door that was “not secure.” Estrada entered the building through that door and admitted to “using markers to write on and vandalize the walls, doors, and pictures that were hanging in the hallway.”

Court documents state, “Andres admitted to taking a new softball equipment type backpack that he found in the locker room. Andres had used this backpack to place his personal belongings in. The backpack also contained items that Andres had taken from the locker room. The items that Andres took from the locker room included clothing, hygiene products, hair accessories, and other miscellaneous items. Andres informed me that he was planning on taking the backpack and the other items that he stole in the locker room as he was currently homeless and these items could assist him.”

Estrada was also found wearing clothing with BYU logos on them. When asked, he informed police he had stolen the clothes as well and put them on.

Estrada and his property were searched and inside his wallet a syringe was found with a liquid inside of it. Estrada confirmed to police that “the substance in the syringe was likely methamphetamine.”

He was booked into the Utah County Jail on charges of burglary, criminal mischief, possession or use of a controlled substance, theft, and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
