Dozens of trees, signs vandalized in northwest Bend

Someone or a group of people are responsible for vandalizing a neighborhood in northwest Bend over the weekend.

Police received calls Saturday morning of dozens of trees and 10 signs being knocked down or damaged. This was primarily around Summit High School and Pacific Crest Middle School.

There were cones along the sidewalk Monday in the area where those trees once stood.

Bend’s Public Works Department estimates it will cost around $1,000 to replace each tree.

“Obviously there’s always a concern that somebody is going to decide to do something like this again. It’s not a small incident. It’s not like ‘Oh, kids being kids.’ I mean, this is huge property damage. It’s estimated at about $35,000 in damage,” said Bend Police Communications Manager Sheila Miller.

Miller adds that this crime is considered first degree criminal mischief.

Anyone with information about the incident can call Bend Police at 541-693-6911.
