Rascals ruin crepe myrtles in Benton

Ruined crepe myrtles


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 and submitting any information about the dastardly deed there.

    disse:I precisely had to thank you very much again. I do not know the things that I would have used in the absence of the smart ideas contributed by you regarding my subject. It had been a real fearsome difficulty for me, but taking a look at the very well-written style you handled it forced me to leap for fulfillment. I am just grateful for this service and in addition hope you are aware of a powerful job you are always getting into training most people thru your site. Most probably you haven’t got to know any of us.
