HANSON — Chief Michael Miksch and the Hanson Police Department are seeking the public’s help to identify three individuals suspected of vandalizing Town property on multiple occasions this year.
On Friday, Jan. 22 and Friday, March 12, three individuals were captured on surveillance footage during the evening hours at the Hanson Public Library, located at 132 Maquan Street in town. On both of these dates, there was extensive property damage found at the library.
One individual was seen on camera on the night of March 12 wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and a dark-colored backpack. A second individual was seen wearing a black short-sleeved shirt, jeans, a black hat, black gloves and a dark-colored face mask. A third individual was seen wearing a white short-sleeved shirt, jeans and a black hat. The second and third individuals were later seen on camera in the back parking lot of the library carrying and later riding skateboards in the lot.
Hanson Police would like to speak to the three individuals regarding these incidents, and are asking the public for help locating them. If anyone knows these individuals or has any information regarding the incidents that took place at the library on either night, they are asked to contact Hanson Police Sgt. Peter Daley at 781-293-4625.
“It is our hope that someone from the community speaks up about the identity of these individuals or about the acts of vandalism that occurred at the library,” Chief Miksch said. “The identity of anyone who contacts us with information will be kept confidential, and could prove to be critical to our investigation.”
