Vandals deface Thayer park picnic tables

Monday, August 29, 2011

Over the Aug. 20 weekend, vandals defaced city-owned wooden picnic tables in Warm Fork Park in Thayer with black permanent marker. Thayer Police Chief David Bailey said the vandalism likely was done by juveniles. The penalty for someone age 17 or older who is convicted of vandalism to city property is generally a $500 fine and restitution to pay for cleanup. The judge also can sentence the perpetrator to up to one year in jail. City officials said the tables may have to be sanded and painted to cover the marker. Photo/Steven Looney
