Reward offered for vandals

Police Detective Scott Braden points to one of the more dramatic sections of brick wall that was broken Saturday afternoon, that night, or Sunday morning. If you heard or saw something that might help Braden's investigation, call him at 359-3800.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators of vandalism at the old Genesco plant last weekend.

Vandalism estimated at $35,000 to $40,000 behind the old factory is being investigated by Lewisburg Police who want the public's help to get information that may lead to the perpetrators.

"I'm hoping someone saw something and will call us," City Police Detective Scott Braden said while displaying the damage he suspects was done by a track hoe and/or a fork lift which were found at the back parking lot of the building.

The phone number to call is (931) 359-3800, Braden said. He declined to report the source of the reward.
