Vandals Cause $10,000 in Damage at Alabama Park

November 2, 2011

Pelham, Alabama police say they’re searching for suspects after $10,000 worth of damage was done at the city park.

Parks and Recreation Director Billy Crandall said he believes the crime might be gang-related and a form of retaliation against the state government.

WBRC-TV reports that the vandalism included gang graffiti and inappropriate drawings on the walls of the restrooms at the park. It also included profanity-filled messages opposing House Bill 56, Alabama’s new law on illegal immigration.

Authorities said the vandals also spray-painted playground equipment.
