Girl Scout camp vandalized

October 4, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Special to CN: A window was one of the many things vandalized at the local Girl Scouts camp.Recently, Weatherford Police Department was contacted by representatives of the local Girl Scouts of America who reported that several buildings at the Girl Scout camp, located at 1419 Holland Lake Dr, had been vandalized including the 120 year old, single room, rock cabins.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found multiple windows broken, a fire extinguisher discharged, and graffiti on several of walls inside the buildings. The suspects spray painted “SKJ”, “Westside” and “420”.

“The Girls Scouts and the Girl Scout camp has been an important part of the community for many years now,” stated Captain Greg Lance, “We need to take active measures to protect our historic heritage. The first step would be for someone to come forward with information that would help us solve this crime.”

An exact amount of damage to the buildings has not been determined yet but thought to reach $2000 or more.

Pictures of some of the damage are attached.
