BOULDER, Colo. — In its heyday  it would have taken a wild party to cause $70,000 worth of damage to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity on the CU-Boulder campus. But, according to police, it only took six suspects to cause that much destruction at the former frat house last month.

On Friday, Boulder police released surveillance footage showing some of the suspects throwing rocks and breaking windows outside of the vacant building at 1101 University Avenue, which used to house the University of Colorado’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

Police say the damage was caused on Nov. 17, and the estimated repair costs are approximately $70,000.

The suspects appear to be white males between the ages of 18 and 25. One white female was seen outside of the building, but she was not seen entering.

Police are asking for anyone with information regarding the incident or the identity of the suspects pictured to call Det. Kipp Euler at 303-441-3393.

Those with information who would like to remain anonymous can contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
