Rascals ruin crepe myrtles in Benton

Ruined crepe myrtles

Destroyed!

The Benton Police Department announced that someone — or a group of fiendish someones — destroyed nine of the new crepe myrtle trees that were added as part of the city’s revitalization project on South Street. The trees have a replacement value of $750.

Benton Police want to bring the vandals to justice and are encouraging anyone with information about the crime to come forward and rat out the ne’er-do-well(s). Want to avenge the defenseless trees? Call the Benton Police at (501)778-1171 or (501)315-TIPS.

Individuals can also send anonymous tips about the crime by sending a text to CRIMES (274637) with the keyboard BNPD in the body of the message or by going to www.crimereports.com and submitting any information about the dastardly deed there.
