LINTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Linton Mayor John Wilkes said park vandals should turn themselves in “immediately” before they are identified.

He noted that the Linton Police Department and city administration are working to stop “the expensive damages caused by disrespectful people.”

The latest vandals were caught on camera Wednesday night as they emptied trash containers on the ground of the Linton park. The containers were then thrown on top of basketball hoops.
