I'm reposting this from fishtown.us:
Monday Evening September 26th at approximately 10 pm vandals entered Popís Black Coyle Mcbride Playground and cut down the center Basketball Hoops and Back boards. The estimate of this damage is upwards of $4000 dollars.
Friends of Pops is deeply saddened that someone saw fit to destroy part of our wonderful playground and are asking anyone with any information to come forward.
Please let help as we work together to find the person who would literally steal toys from the children of our neighborhood.
