Milton police seek information on vandalism
The police and public works department have noticed an unusually high number of vandalism complaints in parks this year, according to a news release from Chief Jerry Schuetz.
Last week, someone broke into Central Park and stole several hundred dollars' worth of tennis balls, the release says.
The police have deployed an intern on bike patrol to try to catch the vandals. Continued vandalism might make the city change park hours, the release says.
The department asks residents to report any suspicious behavior in or around the parks or any knowledge of the vandalism to the Rock County Communications Center at (608) 757-2244 or Janesville/Milton Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 756-3636. Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
