DOUBLE SPRINGS - The complex which formerly housed Looney’s Tavern Amphitheater, a site which drew many tourists for several years, was most recently the site of at least $10,000 worth of vandalism, which is being actively investigated by the Double Springs Police Department.
On April 20, T. J. Milligan, one of the owners of the Looney’s Tavern complex, notified law enforcement that the property had been heavily vandalized.
“The owner of the property discovered that the windows and doors on the buildings on his property had been destroyed,” noted Police Chief Kim Miller.
The windows and doors had apparently been destroyed either by rocks or golf clubs, from the former putt putt golf course that is also on the property, police noted.
At the small building where the public once paid for playing Looney’s putt putt golf, windows were smashed and blinds left mangled.
At the bathroom facility next door, large graffiti had been painted over the front along with windows busted out.
At the Dual Destiny theatre, every window was smashed out, with glass in both entrance doors also smashed.
