Reward being offered in conjunction with vandalism ...

The Waukon Police Department responded to a call of vandalism (pictured in a submitted photo) that took place during the overnight hours of Saturday, February 4 into Sunday, February 5 and left the front of the Krambeer Barber Shop building and its sidewalk on Main Street in downtown Waukon covered in an oily substance believed to be motor oil, according to the report issued by Waukon Police. The Waukon Police Department is continuing to investigate the incident, and a reward (see advertisement below) is being offered for information leading to the conviction of the person(s) involved in the incident.

In what appear to be related incidents, the Waukon Police Department also took a pair of reports of vehicles having oil dumped on them during the late evening and overnight hours of Wednesday, February 8 and Thursday, February 9. That Wednesday evening, shortly after 8:30 p.m., a report was taken of a vehicle parked on Spring Avenue, across from Kwik Star in Waukon, having an oil-like substance (similar to the storefront case pictured above) splashed on to the front and driver's side while the vehicle owner was attending a class between the hours of 5 and 8:30 p.m. The next morning, Thursday, another report was taken of a vehicle owned by a resident of West Street SW in Waukon that also had an oil-like substance dumped on it, an incident the vehicle owner believes happened while the car was parked overnight in the driveway of the West Street SW residence.

Anyone with additional information about any of the above-described incidents is encouraged to call the Waukon Police Department at 563-568-3427.
