Vandals cause $25,000 in damage to Purcellville’s Franklin Park

Franklin Park in Purcellville is temporarily closed after vandals caused extensive damage during the night Friday.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, vandals were able to access work trucks at the park and wreck park grounds and structures, causing an estimated $25,000 in damages.

The park is temporarily closed to allow Loudoun deputies to investigate the scene.

The vandalism was discovered shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021. If the caller wishes to remain anonymous, they are asked to call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. If the information leads to an arrest and indictment, the caller could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.


My first thought was that it was some sort of eco-terrorism related to the lighting controversy. But my gut tells me that that would be giving the perps too much credit. More likely, it was some yahoos out for a joy ride. Fortunately, yahoos tend to have big mouths. Let’s hope that the reward does its job and the LTM has some mug shots to post soon.
