Army Recruitment Center Vandalized

By  | 

Vandalism strikes the small town of Canon City.

Police say the Army Recruitment Center was sabotaged earlier this week.

Authorities say this isn't the first time it's happened.

In the last two years the recruitment center has been targeted at least 10 times.

That doesn't include times the center never told police.

Police say the vandals broken an antenna on a U.S. government vehicle, spit on their windows and taped a lewd picture of U.S. Troops near the door's entrance.

There were also obscene words smeared across the photo.

It all happened Wednesday in the middle of the night.

Locals say the person or people responsible should be brave enough to speak their mind in daylight.

Police say the photo itself or the words written on it is not a crime but the destruction of property is.

According to police there are no witnesses but authorities say that's okay because the criminals left clues behind, fingerprints.

Authorities are investigating those prints.

Police say it might be a good idea for the recruitment center to put a camera outside.
