City police seek information on fence-breaking suspects

Mount Pleasant police are seeking information about the vandalization of a wooden fence that occurred at a sorority house on April 8.

Members of Alpha Chi Omega reported that a large portion of a wooden fence on their property, located at 916 S. Main St., was pushed over and torn apart, said Officer Justin Nau of the Mount Pleasant Police Department. The fence divides the house’s driveway from Main Street Apartments, 116 W. Campus Drive.

Nau said the incident likely happened between 4 and 5 p.m.

Members of the sorority saw two men “messing with” the 6-foot-high fence that afternoon, Nau said. The women left the property and when they returned roughly 40 feet of the fence had been pushed over or torn apart, Nau said.

“I’m guessing somebody at Main Street Apartments did it or knows who did it because there are apartments right there,” he added.

People witnessed the men vandalize the fence and tried to confront them, but they fled before they could be identified, Nau said. The witnesses took a picture of the suspects in the act, but the photo was of no help.

Lt. Jeff Browne said the department is asking for to help identify the suspects.

Anyone with information can contact Nau at 989-779-5100 ext. 6012. Anonymous tips can be given at 989-779-9111.
