Man works to increase reward to catch vandalism suspects

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany man is asking the community to pitch in to catch those responsible for defacing war memorials downtown.

Jake Walsh has spearheaded a website in order to increase the reward money for information leading to an arrest of those responsible for the crime.

He is asking people to give a small donation of just a few dollars that will add up to a greater amount. He hopes at that point someone will come forward.

Walsh said he was angry after seeing the war memorials in Veterans Park had been spray painted over the Memorial Day weekend.

His father is a World War II veteran and says this incident hit home.

"Something needs to be done and if the extra funding can help smoke out who ever did this, and bring them forward, I think it's a great thing for everybody," said Walsh.
