Authorities say a 19-year-old Superior man has been arrested in connection with a number of vandalism incidents at Wade Bowl Park and several locations along Belknap Street over the past few months.
The Superior Police Department is confident that the man is the lone suspect in these "tagging" vandalism incidents, according to a May 23 release from Assistant Chief Matt Markon. The most recent vandalism incidents were reported at three businesses along Belknap Street on Wednesday morning, May 22: the Subway Restaurant, Huntington Bank and Superior Glass.
Although the man has been referred to the Douglas County District Attorney's Office, no formal charges have been filed.
Solon Springs vandals identified
The suspects who vandalized the pavilion at Lucius Woods County Park in Solon Springs earlier this month have also been identified, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office announced May 23 on Facebook that four juveniles had been identified as suspects and would be referred to juvenile court.
Significant damage was done to the pavilion between 10 a.m. May 15 and 9:30 a.m. May 16, according to a report by Sgt. Jake Engelman.
Toilets, sinks and light bulbs had been smashed, bathroom mirrors and soap and toweling dispensers broken. Water pipes had been broken off and flooded the floor, the refrigerator was tipped over and the doors ripped off.
There was also evidence that the suspects were on the roof of the pavilion, as two of the roof vents had been ripped off. One was found inside the building.
The pavilion, owned and operated by the Douglas County Forestry Department, was locked, but a window had been pried open.
