Polk County Enterprise, August 2007
LIVINGSTON — Investigators are seeking information about criminal mischief reported at Anniversary Park Saturday or Sunday. Parks department workers reported three lighting fixtures recently placed on the bridge at the park were broken off the base and damaged, Livingston Police Department reports show. Damage is estimated at $1,200.
LPD officers were approached at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday and informed that the gates at Bounds Autoplex on the U.S. 59 Bypass had been opened.
Officers found several Suburbans and Tahoes without tires and rims. The vehicles had been placed on tan-colored landscape stones after burglars removed the tires and rims, reports show.
All four tires were removed from four vehicles and officers found landscape stones near several other Tahoes that had lug nuts removed when the suspects were possibly scared away from the dealership.
