Tisbury police release video of Owen Park vandals


Tisbury police are using a video surveillance recording that shows vandalism in progress at Owen Park dock in Vineyard Haven. The video is available online at www.mvtimes.com.

The footage captured images of a group of six young people, two girls and four boys, who appear to be high school age, police say, as they struck and irreparably damaged four dock lights on the night of November 22. The lights are valued at $350 apiece.

Although police continue to investigate, the process of identifying the vandals is difficult because the footage was taken in low-light circumstances.

Police Chief Dan Hanavan said his department will appreciate help from anyone in the community who may recognize one or more of the group and provide names. Call the Tisbury Police at 508-696-4240.
