Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest for vandalism to the grounds of Holmberg Park at 9615 N. Wall St. and Whitworth University in the early morning hours of Aug. 25.

Someone drove through the grass in Holmberg Park, damaging it, and wrecked the fence around the pool, according to a Spokane County Sheriff’s Office news release. The damage will cost thousands of dollars to repair.

Around the same time similar damage was done to the Whitworth University soccer and softball fields. The tire tracks indicate the suspects may have been driving a full-size pickup truck, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The news release urged the vandals to “step up and take responsibility for your actions before we find out who you are.”

Anyone with information about the vandalism can call the Crime Stoppers tip line at (800) 222-TIPS or visit Tipsters can remain anonymous.
