Vandalism hits Marshall parks a second time

A week after Marshall Police were notified of theft and damage to the floodlights used to illuminate the Mrs. Whitney statue in downtown Liberty Park, the department has now offered a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for damage to flood lights at the Independence Park memorial.

Police say that last Friday, floodlights used to illuminate the Veteran’s Memorial at the park were destroyed and taken.

Anyone with information is asked to call the MPD at 507-537-7000. Callers can remain confidential.
