Simpson Town Hall Tagged Again By Vandals

There's been more vandalism at a town hall in Pitt County.

Vandals once again hit Simpson's town hall with spray paint. Exactly two weeks ago the town hall and new police cruiser were tagged with blue spray paint.

The village's public works director discovered the latest damage this morning. This time the town hall was tagged with black spray paint with foul messages once again directed to police.

Mayor David Boyd says while they are extremely upset by what has happened, they won't be intimidated by the vandalism.

Simpson has been without a police officer since Chief John Waters was injured in an automobile accident in August.

The village, along with Pitt County Crime Stoppers, is offering a $5300 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the case.


Previous Story

Two rewards are now offered to help police find those who tagged a new police car and town hall earlier this week.

Vandals used blue spray paint on Simpson's unmarked police cruiser and town hall, tagging them with vulgar words.

Pitt-Greenville Crime Stoppers is now offering up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case, while the village is offering an additional $300 reward.

The village had just purchased the used cruiser to replace one totaled by their police chief in late August.

Anyone with information on the vandalism should call Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777.


Previous Story

Deputies are investigating who vandalized Simpson's new police car and its town hall.

Someone used blue spray paint to tag the police cruiser and town hall this weekend. The damage, that included several curse words, was discovered this morning by town workers. WITN has blurred the offensive language in the images.

The new cruiser, which is to replace the one totaled by Chief John Waters in August, had not yet been outfitted with lights or decals. The vehicle was parked behind town hall.

Waters was injured in the accident so the village does not have an officer in his absence.

Town hall was also tagged with the blue paint. Those messages also included foul language and derogatory remarks about police.
