Suspected Cave Vandals Nabbed

Posted By on Thu, Jun 9, 2011 at 11:16 PM

Just a few weeks after reporting that a clueless vandal or vandals had defaced a cave along China Hat Road that contained that contained invaluable artifacts, including Native American pictographs, The Forest Service announced today that it has apprehended the suspects.

The Deschtues National Forest sent out a press release on Thursday afternoon said that Forest Service Law Enforcement had interviewed and identified five suspects in the case and has now referred them the matter to the U.S. Department of Justice. (That’s right, dipshits, you committed a federal crime.)

The release provided few other details but thanked the local caving group The High Desert Grotto, which raised money for a reward that was offered prior to the suspects apprehension.
