Kewaunee Sheriff’s Warns Vandalism Could Lead to Arrest

The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department is sending out a warning that anyone caught purposely destroying Kewaunee County property will be ticketed and could face arrest, following a recent act of vandalism at Krohn’s Lake in the Town of Pierce. On June 1, the Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Department was contacted about numerous picnic tables that were put into the lake, as well as garbage thrown around the property, including broken beer bottles. The Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Department reports that Krohn’s Lake is one of their most popular inland lakes not only for anglers, but swimmers too with its mini-beach and raft. And, unfortunately, it’s also one of the most prone to vandalism. In the past, the department has been notified about extensive graffiti and damage to the park entrance sign. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski warns that his department has no problem issuing tickets or making arrests to put a stop to vandalism, “When we’re dealing with vandalism like this, it’s not only an extra cost to our department to increase patrols and wasted funds to fix or replace the damaged property, these people are also taking away resources needed for a real emergency.” Anyone with any information on vandalism is asked to call the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department non-emergency line at 920.388.3100, callers can remain anonymous.
