Vandal causes major damage

Two speed limit signs, a “No Exit” sign and part of a fence were pulled from the ground and crepe myrtle trees were damaged along Montgomery Avenue in Ocoee at about 2:50 a.m. June 5.

“A surveillance camera at the front of the Admiral Pointe subdivision shows what appears to be a white male pulling the signs from the ground and damaging the fence,” Ocoee police said in a statement. “The suspect is with another male, who picks up the first sign and appears to want to stop the suspect from pulling another sign as the suspect throws the sign in the street. The suspect appears to be intoxicated as the video shows him stumble while walking along Montgomery Avenue. The total amount of damage is estimated at $1,000.”
