Some person, or a group of people, vandalized the splash pad at Lions Park in Shakopee.
The Shakopee Police Department shared photos of the damage at the splash pad - which is believed to have occurred the night of May 15 - showing what appears to be a lion with a missing foot, as well as just the stems of what appear to be water-spraying flowers.
Police Chief Jeff Tate told Bring Me The News the estimated cost to repair/replace the lion is $10,000-$12,000.
"This will delay the opening of the splash pad, which has become popular with our residents," Tate said.
In an effort to find out who damaged the splash pad, officials are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who has information that leads to an arrest of the person, or people, responsible, a news release says. Shakopee Crime Prevention, Inc. is offering a $500 reward and the Shakopee Lions Club will match the $500 reward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Shakopee Police Department at 952-233-9400.
