Pueblo Police Looking For Vandals That Destroyed Local Park


Pueblo police are hoping to catch the crooks who vandalized a community park.

On Sunday around 7:50 a.m., Pueblo police were called to Bessemer Park on Northern Avenue for reports of graffiti at the park. When an officer arrived she found the entire park had been damaged with graffiti, including: the pool, storage building, concrete monuments, signs tables, benches, bleachers, trashcans, dumpsters, trees, power poles/boxes, sidewalks and a north concrete wall.

The damage to the park is estimated at approximately $10,000.

If you have any information on who is responsible for the damage to Bessemer Park you are urged to call Pueblo Crime Stoppers @ 542-STOP (542-7867) or visit their web site at www.Pueblocrimestoppers.com. Your information could earn you a cash reward.

    Leave the police alone, they responded as they should have. Get on the parents who cannot parent and the kids who have no respect for anything. This type of crime illustrates how stupid and self centered the perps are. They are probably flashing gang signs and laughing about how brave they are...what punks they really are.

    Maybe if there were enough police to patrol all the areas that would be possible. They just do not have the manpower to be at all places at all times. Maybe the citizens should take a little pride and pay attention to what is going on in their neighborhoods.

    Maybe if the Pueblo police would actually patrol the parks like the Colorado Springs police do they could've been caught and the damage wouldn't be so bad. Crime prevention doesn't seem to be a priority here and I think that's a problem they should work on.
