Vandalism Closes Pool Early

A senseless, and revolting, act of vandalism has forced the early closure of a public pool in St. Thomas.

The Jaycees public swimming pool has to close three days ahead of schedule, after someone threw dog feces into the pool.

St. Thomas police say it happened sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. In the wake of the incident, police say there will be more patrols in the area.

Anyone with any information is asked to call St. Thomas police at 519-631-1364.
