Community Offers $500 to Find Crisfield Vandal

Posted:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Wellington Beach has become the target of a number of graffiti incidents, and in response more than 100 community members are reaching into their pockets to find the person responsible. $500 has been raised, which will go to anybody who can provide information into who vandalized a play-boat in the area.

The damage is small, but still the group of community members is willing to go to great lengths in order to protect a beach they built themselves. With funding from Crisfield commissioners, the community built the entire beach, after years of degradation.

Will Schoffstall was one of the young children playing on the play-boat. He was being watched by his grandmother Katie Schoffstall. Schoffstall said she was concerned by the graffiti, because she said the marks which mentioned drugs and alcohol were not appropriate for her grandson.

"It makes me sad to think that they don't respect their community no more than that," she said.

The boat was donated by a local business in June, and was constructed by a local contractor. It's this community effort that makes organizers like Billie Chandler the most frustrated. In order to combat the graffiti, Chandler offered $100 to anyone who could point out the culprit. She said more than 30 others followed, allowing the pot to grow to $500 so far.

"It's kinda upsetting because there's a group of kids that just want to go around vandalizing the town," she said. "And we want to put a stop to it."

Crisfield Police continues to investigate this case of vandalism on Wellington Beach.
