The Apalachicola Police Department is asking for the public's assistance with any information that will lead to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the vandalism of Jim Bachrach's 2007 Toyota Land Cruiser, above, while lawfully parked at his 115 Bay Ave home.
Police say that the incident occurred after 8:30 p.m. Friday night and before 8 a.m. Saturday morning.
Officers investigating the crime are working on the theory that the incident was targeted and directly related to the cutting down of the Christmas tree in Riverfront Park, which had drawn the anger of several community residents. Main Street, of which Bachrach is the president, had backed the city’s decision to cut down the tree. – BY DAVID ADLERSTEIN
