Reward offered in vandalism case

Vandals struck in Holmes Beach during the Save The Gulf three-day concert held on the city hall field.

According to police, sometime at night Nov. 19, a rock was taken from a ditch outside the bathrooms adjacent to the Holmes Beach Skate Park, 5801 Marina Drive, and thrown into a toilet bowl. The toilet in a men’s bathroom stall was destroyed and will cost $500 to replace.

While the bathroom area is under surveillance, Holmes Beach Police Chief Jay Romine would like to remind the community of the city reward program, which offers up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.

Romine said tips should be called in to HBPD Detective Mike Leonard at 941-708-5804.
