Brighton police are investigating several cases of vandalism to the new restroom facilities
in Carmichael Park, located behind City Hall at 650 Southern St.
The crimes, which have been occurring since approximately December 14, include
damage to drinking fountain pipes, rocks torn from the exterior facade of the building, damage
to mirrors and light sensors inside the restrooms, and someone setting a fire which damaged
walls inside the facility.
Police Chief Clint Blackhurst said that the real victims of the crimes were the
citizens of Brighton, who would be unable to use the facilities until they could be repaired. “In a
city that takes such pride in providing quality recreational facilities for its residents to enjoy, it’s
a shame to see senseless acts like this, which hurt us all and benefit no one.”
Anyone with information related to any of the vandalism incidents is asked to call the
Brighton Police Department tip-line at (303) 655-8740.
