Destruction of Property

The Martinsburg Police Department is currently investigating two cases of destruction of property in which flower baskets and planters and contents were destroyed along with a marble statue of Mary.

There were two locations in which this occurred. One, the Berkeley County Court House located at 100 West King Street Martinsburg WV. At this location perpetrators upset flower baskets scattering their contents.

The second location was at 123 South Queen Street, St. Joseph’s Church Martinsburg WV. At this location perpetrators knocked the flower baskets and flower pots down scattering their contents. They also knocked off its base and broke in half a marble statue of Mary.

It is believed that these incidents occurred on July 31st 2011 approximately between 1:00 AM and 1:15 AM. Surveillance video captured three subjects of interest in the area of the Court house at that time and one video actually shows them upsetting one of the flower planters.

The video depicts what is believed to be three white males in shorts and tee shirts running from the alley behind the Court House.

Anyone with information as to the identity of these subjects or with information regarding these crimes is urged to call the Martinsburg Police Department at 304 264 2100.
