Troopers investigate vandalism cases at camps near Safety Roadhouse


NOME, Alaska — Alaska State Troopers are investigating vandalism cases at camps near the Safety Roadhouse.

Nome radio station KNOM reports ( troopers have two cases on file, but residents say others haven't been reported.

One case being investigated involves vandals breaking into one cabin and dumping liquids, sugar and salt and pepper on the floor, making a sticky mess. The other case involves a stolen ATV which was found left on a beach where it had run out of gas.

Safety Sound residents also report finding vehicles with slashed tires and cabins with broken windows.

A big section of the wall of a trailer was torn away at a camp near Hastings, and the microwave and cabinets were thrown outside.

Some community members are trying to get a reward fund together.
