WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – What is known as the Great River Bridge in Westfield has recently been vandalized with graffiti, and the Westfield Detective Bureau took to Facebook to bring this message to the public.
Sergeant Eric Hall of the Community Police Unit told 22News that the water department buildings by the bridge were repainted on August 1st, but he noticed graffiti on the building walls just a few days later.
When 22News got there, we even saw some of the light posts that had graffiti on them. One Westfield resident told 22News he’s upset to see part of his community vandalized.
“People should really value their town and their city, and it’s really unfortunate that someone would go and write graffiti on a bridge that was just redone. Our taxes pay for that,” said Tauren Jones of Westfield.
Sergeant Hall told 22News that the heavy rains in Westfield Wednesday afternoon kept clean up crews from cleaning up that graffiti. They are looking for any volunteers to help clean the paint.
Sergeant Hall is heading the investigation to find out who has done this, and he is asking for the public’s help. If you have any information, you are asked to contact the Westfield Detective Bureau at 413- 642-9383.
