The Cherokee County Parks & Recreation Board needs your help in finding the person/persons that left graffiti on the rocks at Cherokee Rock Village.
According to Park Board Chairman Leann Hill workers discovered the vandalism on Sunday, this comes after several volunteers mostly from out of state spent several hours removing graffiti from the rocks during the 2016 Acsend Weekend at the park last Saturday.
Cherokee Rock Village released the following statement on their Facebook Page –
Graffiti at Cherokee Rock Village (and most other places) is ILLEGAL and we promise that anyone caught vandalizing this property will go to jail. Then, you will have the pleasure of paying fines and spending the next 6 months of your life doing community service cleaning up not just your mess, but messes left by others. This is a shame and so upsetting. A huge group of volunteers just spent a weekend out of their lives removing graffiti from Cherokee Rock Village on April 23, 2016 at Ascend Weekend. Please help us stop this insanity! If you see someone vandalizing our parks, please call the police!
Just last year the Park Board prosecuted three juveniles and they were sentenced to six months of community service which included them having to remove the graffiti they left on the rocks at the park.
If you have any information, or you know who committed this crime you are asked to contact the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Tip-Line at 256-927-9999.
