Cops seek info on vandals
• Delta police are asking for the public’s help in finding the person or persons who vandalized two city parks, causing thousands of dollars in damage.
An officer conducting foot patrol in Confluence Park near the Visitor’s Center restrooms around 4:20 a.m. Monday noticed the weather broadcast for rest stop motorists was not playing and the door to the women’s restroom was ajar. The officer then discovered substantial damage to the facility, including broken restroom sinks, toilets and urinals, police said.
A few hours later, officers were dispatched to Cleland Park regarding damage to restrooms there and found towel dispensers had been removed from the walls, towels were used to clog the toilets and the rooms were flooded. Officers found paper and debris strewn about, a stall door removed from the women’s restroom and broken lights.
Anyone with information is asked to call Delta police at 970-874-7676 or Crime Stoppers of Delta County at 970-874-8810.
