Apalachicola Police have identified the person who broke spindles and part of the railing on the Lafayette Park gazebo. On Monday, Chief Bobby Varnes said he knows who damaged the ornamental structure and is considering what charges to bring.

Varnes said contrary to rumor, the spindles were not damaged by skateboarders. He said the vandal is a male, a minor, and the damage was done over a period of two weeks. He said the boy is not yet in custody but police have spoken to him and his family about the crime. - By LOIS SWOBODA
