Vinton police received several complaints of spray paint vandalism to vehicles and buildings in the southeast corner of Vinton Tuesday morning. Targets reported vandalized included cars, pavement, garage doors, the scoreboard of the middle school softball field and even the inside of the concession stand at the Vinton-Shellsburg High School softball field.
"During the day on Tuesday, Vinton Police took several complaints of overnight criminal mischief," said Capt. Bruce Smith of the Vinton Police Dept. "Most of the complaints were in the area around the Tilford School and the complaints involved spray painting on buildings, at least two vehicles, and the streets and street signs. The concession stand at the Tilford ball diamond was also broken into overnight and candy and pop were taken. Anyone with any information is asked to please contact the Vinton Police Department at 319-472-2321."
The concession stand break-in is the second this month. Volunteer Barb Winsor said that about $40 worth of merchandise was taken June 9, and another $100 worth on June 23.
