Montrose Regional Crime Stoppers and the Bureau of Land Management are seeking the help of citizens to locate and apprehend one or more individuals responsible for vandalism to federal property at the Peach Valley Recreational site within the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area.
On or about Nov. 27, it was observed that someone had spray painted graffiti on the facilities at the Peach Valley site. The Peach Valley Recreation Site is the primary staging area for a number of outstanding trails and riding opportunities. Off-highway vehicle enthusiasts come from all around to ride this area. Delta and Montrose communities especially benefit from these visits. While the facilities damaged by this senseless vandalism are maintained by BLM, they are clearly public and community assets.
Federal law enforcement officers are investigating the crime and are offering a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest of the person(s) responsible. That reward will be paid anonymously through the Crime Stoppers system if that is the means used to report the identity of the vandals.
Anyone with information about this vandalism can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 970-249-8500 or use app P3 Tips or P3 Tips.com. Crime Stoppers and the BLM want your information, not your identity. If the tip results in an arrest, the caller may receive a cash award. Make your region a safer place to live and work by removing these vandals from our communities.
