Rail cars damaged at GCRS
Monday afternoon, Officer J.T. Gillen, with the Orange Police Dept., responded to a call at Gulf Coast Rail Services, in the 1300 block of Front St., in reference to a criminal mischief call.
When Officer Gillen arrived, he met with John Lynch, of GCRS. Lynch told police that an unkown suspect damaged four rail cars belonging to Harsco Rail Technologies.
The damage was made to a locomotive, sleeping car, dining car and parts car. Numerous windows had been broken out, fire extinguishers discharged and all the cabinets and closets were empty, and the items had been rummaged through.
Lynch told police that he had not seen or inspected the cars in the last week as he inspects them once a week.
Lynch could not provide an estimate on damages, and he said he would be contacting the Texas Railroad Police in reference to the accident.
