Sign, mailboxes destroyed, police seek tips
DRYDEN TWP. — Dryden Township Police hope the public can help them find the vandal or vandals who damaged a Seven Ponds Nature Center sign at Crawford and Lake George roads.
Chief Shawn Peters said they’ve fielded reports from area residents regarding mailbox damage that occurred on Sunday and Monday nights and it’s possible those instances are related to the sign. He said someone used an object to puncture holes in the sign.
In a post on their Facebook page, Seven Ponds states that the sign is damaged beyond repair. It will likely cost the non-profit organization approximately $250 to replace.
“As a non-profit organization, dollars are always challenging to come by and are highly valued, used for environmental education programs for children, adults, and families, or to care for our buildings, grounds, and equipment. Although it’s disheartening to see this kind of damage, we must remember that Seven Ponds has been loved and supported by countless thousands of people for the past half-century, and continues to be,” staff stated in the post.
“Still, we would like to see those responsible brought to justice. We have filed a report with the Dryden Township Police Department.”
Peters said that anyone with information is asked to contact his department at (810) 796-2271 or (810) 667-0292.
