Pioneer Park bandshell vandalized

BROOKINGS – Brookings Police are looking for whoever vandalized the bandshell, according to Assistant Chief Derrick Powers.

The vandalism was reported shortly before 8:30 a.m. Thursday, he said.

“This would’ve occurred at the bandshell at Pioneer Park. The bandshell was spray-painted with graffiti by unknown individuals, so we’re still looking into that matter,” Powers said.

The vandalism will need to be re-painted, and the estimate on the damage is around $400, Powers said.
