UNION GAP, Wash. -- The Central Washington Agricultural Museum was hit by vandals. It's the first time after 35 years in business.

Old tractors had their windows smashed. Vandals tagged sheds and other equipment. Thieves also broke into the museum's donation box and stole the money inside.

Volunteers say even a small amount of money can hurt the operation.

"We rely strictly on donations and on members," said volunteer, Nick Schultz. "Any small amount, even $20, you'd be surprised what thirty volunteers can do with $30 to make the museum a better, happier place."

The Museum has security cameras, but they didn't record the thieves. Union Gap police say gang members are behind the graffiti.
