For Our Viewing Pleasure

It was nice that many of the community were able to take time off during the holidays and share time and gifts with friends and family.  The vandals and litterers were taking the time to share with us also.  They wanted to give us televisions to watch.  The only problems are that they left them far from a plug-in and then shot them so the reception isn't the best.

Two Sears TV's

The photos show two Sears televisions, model 564-4216702 that were shot and left on Revilla Road.  They were apparently taken there and then shot with a .223 rifle and a shotgun, leaving thick broken glass for you to slice your tires on, along with other material from the televisions.
If you have any information on the gift givers please let me know, it would be nice to have them clean up their mess.
