Arrests made in political sign vandalism

By Heather Michon

Three people have been arrested in connection with a spate of vandalism directed against political yard signs in mid-September.

Maj. David Wells, of the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed the arrests of the individuals, whom he described as one juvenile and two adults aged 18-20.

The adults have been charged with four counts each of destruction of property, two counts of entering a property with intent to cause damage, and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. They are set to appear in Fluvanna County General District Court in October.

“Those arrested do not appear to be part of any organization,” Wells said in an email.

Meanwhile, there have been fresh reports of vandalism directed at signs around the county over the last few days, with at least 10 signs defaced or damaged. Most reported cases involve signs supporting President Donald Trump. Local Democratic coordinator Susan Wolff says that she has also received numerous reports of damage to signs supporting former Vice President Joe Biden.

The sheriff’s office has assigned a deputy to look into cases as they arise.
