Tri-County Crimestoppers: Tips needed in Ogallala vandalisms

This is Corporal Bowen Roberts of the Ogallala Police Department for Tri-County Crimestoppers.

The Ogallala Police Department needs your help in solving recent vandalisms.

In the overnight hours of Thursday, June 27, multiple suspects vandalized multiple vehicles and property along the alley north of West Fifth Street using spray paint.  

The suspects then broke into West 5th Elementary School and caused extensive damage. The estimated cost of these vandalisms will likely exceed $20,000.

On June 29, another vandalism was reported at the old Ogallala Middle School.  Again, multiple suspects broke in and caused extensive damage estimated at $20-$30,000. It is possible that both crimes occurred on the same night.

Tri-COUNTY CRIMESTOPPERS will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for your anonymous information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this or any other crimes.  

All you need to do is call Tri-COUNTY CRIMESTOPPERS at (308) 284-4600 and give us your information.
