The New York Yankees announced today that two fans were arrested during Tuesday's Opening Day game vs. the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium for attempting to steal Stadium bunting and causing damage to the bunting and façade.

Both fans were charged with attempted larceny and criminal mischief. Each charge is punishable by up to one year imprisonment and/or fines. They were detained and booked by the New York City Police Department and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The Yankees have also revoked their season ticket accounts.

"The Yankees look forward to making this final season at Yankee Stadium a magical event for every fan," said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. "This type of destructive behavior will not be tolerated from the first game of the season through the last."
