Mayor talking on morning show:

People with "no pride" are vandalizing the newly poured cement slabs (new roads) by Maya Island Air. That is pretty low .

Contact the town council.

Marty, vandalized how and for what motive? The blurb from the news didn't mention whether it was kids putting their handprints in newly poured cement or some sort of wholesale destruction by anarchists.

Lion Fish Street Project vandalized; perpetrators caught on Camera

The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) is offering a $500 reward for anyone who can help them identify the persons responsible for defacing the freshly placed concrete slabs placed along Lion Street. The defacing of the concrete occurred during a short period of time, between 9:30PM and 9:45PM, on Tuesday August 21st right in front of Maya Island Air. The entire incident was caught on surveillance camera.

The concrete slabs had been recently set down on Lion Street as part of the street rehabilitation project conducted by Medina’s Construction. At least six of the slabs were defaced, four of which will need to be fixed or replaced. Speaking to The San Pedro Sun as he inspected the project Mayor Daniel Guerrero said, “It is unacceptable for people to destroy something that will benefit the entire island. Honestly I don’t think the island needs these kinds of people that are in the business of destroying our infrastructure.” The Mayor also took the opportunity to review the footage from a surveillance camera at Captain Shark’s that captured three males defacing the concrete by carving all sort of messages, leaving a “bad taste” to visitors and residents alike. The surveillance, in which one of the brave men stared at the camera, captured the young men moving from slab to slab while at least ten people passed by and even observed the men defacing the pavement.

For that reason, the SPTC is offering a $500 reward to anyone who can help them identify the three people responsible for defacing the pavement. The footage is available at Captain Shark’s for review. The upgrade of Lion Street is expected to be completed by the end of September.

I hope this vandalism was an isolated act and wasn't any kind of gang activity...would hate to see that on our island.

Gang activity... who knows, looks to me, without any direct knowledge, a kid or young person 'making their mark' in wet cement, like many of us did growing up when we had the opportunity to encounter wet cement. Harmless, yet, should not be taken lightly in view of the public expense and hardship of getting this infrastructure laid down. I didn't grow up in a tourist destination per se, so such vandalism was not seen as such a blight upon the public property.
