Authorities have released surveillance video of a man who vandalized a monument inside an Indiana business over the weekend.
According to police, the manager of Shoemaker Monuments reported that a vandal knocked over a 900-pound monument valued at more than $4,000 early Saturday morning inside his Philadelphia Street store.
“When we came here Monday morning we were disappointed to see this particular monument because it’s one of our higher-priced ones,” manager Dana Gould said.
Gould gave police his surveillance video, which showed a white male, who appeared to be of college age, knock over the monument.
Investigators said the suspect was thin and had crew cut hair. He was wearing a dark Nike shirt, khaki shorts and gray/black shoes.
Police said two other males were with the suspect when the incident occurred.
“It was an expensive joke,” Gould said. “Hopefully someone can help us out and ID the individual responsible.”
Indiana Township police Sgt. William Voljek said dozens of incidents were reported around the Indiana University of Pennsylvania campus over the weekend – when they celebrated homecoming.
“It was one of more than 100 incidents involving criminal mischief over homecoming weekend. At least 94 people were arrested,” Voljek said. “The problem you have during homecoming is a lot of visitors have friends come to visit, so it might make it difficult to identify the person.”
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call police at 724-349-2121.
