Authorities in Dodge County seeking vandals who trashed public pool

They left extensive damage to the pool and a construction area.

Police in the southeast Minnesota town of West Concord are trying to find the people who vandalized a public pool facility this past week.

According to a Facebook post from the West Concord Police Department, the culprits struck between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Wednesday, leaving a swath of damage — and beer cans — around the pool:

The department says fencing was knocked over (visible in the picture above), while a construction area at the facility was also vandalized.

The cost of the damages is not clear, but BringMeTheNews has reached out to the city for more details. 

Anyone with information on the crime is urged to contact West Concord police at (507) 527-2870.

West Concord is in Dodge County, about 30 miles from Rochester.
