PARKERSBURG, W.Va.


Authorities are investigating a riot that damaged the Lorrie Yeager Jr. Juvenile Center in Parkersburg.

Parkersburg Police Chief Joseph Martin tells media outlets that six juveniles in custody at the facility destroyed the interior of the commons area. The youths broke windows, destroyed heating and cooling ductwork and broke sprinkler heads away from piping.

Martin says the juveniles were confined to the commons area and there was no threat to the public.

The riot occurred Tuesday evening. Martin says the center's staff regained control in about two hours.

The West Virginia Division of Juvenile Services says the investigation is ongoing.
