The Tonganoxie Recreation Commission is offering a $500 reward to anyone providing information regarding recent vandalism at Tonganoxie Skate Park.

A sign with skate park rules was vandalized with paint and the words “skate or die.” Some rules also were painted over. Police took a report on the vandalism July 4.

Vandalism with the same phrase also occurred between 8 p.m. June 29 and noon June 30 at an apartment complex in the 500 block of East First Street.

McLouth has experienced vandalism as well.

McLouth police Chief Marcus Koch said nine buildings were vandalized the morning of May 8. The east side of McLouth schools was vandalized, as well as eight buildings in the downtown area.

Koch said the graffiti had repetitive monikers, including “WHO” and “POG.”

The police chief said it’s believed that one of the building’s graffiti was drug-related.

He also noted suspects have been identified in the investigation.
