Vandalism and theft in Weetown [UPDATED]Published 12:14pm Friday, October 29, 2010 Updated 12:15pm Friday, October 29, 2010
The owner of Weetown Outpost is offering a $1,000 reward for the person who supplies him with information leading to the capture of the person or persons who vandalized two cars on the store’s lot and stole a trailer worth almost $4,000.
According to Gary Albertson, the owner of the business, the vandalism and theft happened sometime between 7 p.m. on Thursday and 8 a.m. on Friday. The vandal or vandals rifled through the contents of several cars on the lot (including the cars of some customers whose vehicles were in for repairs) and then backed a 2002 police car hard into a 1994 Jeep Cherokee, smashing up both vehicles.
The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident, and Albertson is hoping that the reward will provide additional incentive to the public.
