BRACEBRIDGE — Annie Williams Park continues to suffer from a spate of vandalism.

Frustrated police are now turning to the public to help solve these senseless crimes.

They want help to identify the suspect(s) responsible for several incidents of mischief at the popular summer retreat on the Muskoka River.

They say that on June 2, while many were watching Mayor Graydon Smith get elected MPP, the mischief was reported with numerous surfaces at Annie Williams Park were damaged and spray painted.

There have been several incidents of graffiti over the past three weeks at the park.

“Although tagging may be viewed as little more than an unsightly nuisance to some, it cost property owners and tax payers dearly,” said Insp. Jason Nickle, Detachment Commander.

“I encourage anyone with information on this, or any other crime to come forward. Your information will be taken seriously and investigated thoroughly by the Bracebridge OPP members.”

Anyone with information regarding these incidents, are asked to contact the Bracebridge OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). When you contact Crime Stoppers you remain anonymous, you will never have to testify and you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.

Women’s and men’s washrooms were tagged last night at Annie Williams Park in what police say is not just a nuisance, but costly to taxpayers.

It’s not the first time vandals have targetted the popular park on the south branch of the Muskoka River.
