Santaquin Police Seek Suspects In Vandalism Spree
SANTAQUIN, Utah — Police were seeking help Thursday to find those responsible for a spree of recent acts of vandalism and graffiti.
Cpl. Rich Glenn said investigators were looking into four recent cases, all of which are believed to have taken place on Feb. 22.
In one case at a baseball diamond near 50 S. 400 West, two dugouts were heavily tagged.
“Nobody wants to show up to a baseball diamond and see these, you know, things in the dugout,” Glenn said. “You got, you know, a skull, a skull face, some foul language.”
In other cases, a gang name was spray-painted beneath an I-15 overpass, a truck door was tagged, as was the white vinyl fence at the home of Shawn Miller.
“It was a peace sign, you know, with a ‘420’ next to it,” Miller said. “This is the second time it’s happened on this fence in a year.”
Miller said he is “extremely” frustrated.
“You feel violated,” he said. “Everything that we tried to stay away from, you know, by not living up in the city and stuff—I mean—it can happen anywhere and now it’s happening here.”
Santaquin City Police Department was asking anyone with information about the crimes to call 801-754-1070 during office hours or to call non-emergency dispatch at any hour at 801-794-3970.
“It makes our community look like a disaster,” Glenn said.
