The following press release has been issued by Town of Murphy Police Department.
Around March of this year, the Murphy Police Department learned through social media that the River Walk area in Murphy had been vandalized. The vandalism took place around the Leech Place area of the River Walk. The Murphy Police Department started an investigating of incident and utilized extra foot patrols on the River Walk area.
During the investigation, officers identified several suspects and determined them to be juveniles. Officers conducted several interviews in this case and this case is still ongoing. The disposition of this case is still pending but due to the suspects being juveniles there will be no further press release on this case. The juvenile suspects are cooperating with law enforcement in this case.
The River Walk area is a beautiful area and a great asset for our community. We, along with our community, take pride in the River Walk. We ask the public to assist us in taking care of the area by notifying the Murphy Police Department of suspicious activity in this area or any area as soon as possible.
The Murphy Police Department would like to thank the workers of the River Walk for their hard and dedicated work so we, the community, can enjoy it.
