$2,500 vandalism reward goes unclaimed
By Jan Rahn
According to Perkins County Sheriff Jim Brueggeman, not one single person has stepped forward claim a $2,500 reward concerning vandalism at the Grant Golf Course.
The vandalism, with damage estimated at $15,000 for repair, has been under investigation by the sheriff’s department since its occurrence during the middle part of February.
Brueggeman said he is rather surprised that no one has come forward to provide any information at all, especially since the reward is fairly sizeable.
Members of the Grant Golf Club were very upset at the damage, especially since it is not the first time the course has been vandalized.
Even though the deep tracks left from the vehicle creating the damage have been reseeded, they are still quite visible and are still sunken—indicating it will take several seasons to restore the area to its original condition.
Anyone who has information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the destruction of hole no. 2 on the north edge of the course is asked to contact the Perkins County Sheriff’s Office at 308-352-4564.
The informant will remain anonymous.
