Two women who allegedly toilet papered Central City Hall between 10:15 and 10:30 p.m. on Thursday June 30 in Central, La have come forward on their own, however police are still searching for the driver, who has been identified.
Both women involved in the toilet papering of City Hall have been issued misdemeanor citations and the women have apologized for their actions.
The City of Central also reported that around 20 of the 400 American flags that were put up to celebrate the 4th of July holiday were pulled out of the ground and thrown into the median on Sullivan Road. The sticks supporting the flags were also snapped in half.
The Central Police Department believes the flag incident occurred between 9:30 and 10:45 p.m. on June 30.
The mayor of Central apologized on Facebook to the citizens of Central for these acts of vandalism, saying service men and women in particular deserved an apology for the desecration of the American flags.
“When somebody comes in and desecrates a flag, no matter how small it is or how large it is, I take that very personally. Central is a very patriotic city and it was something that was shameful,” said Mayor Jr. Shelton.
The mayor said he is confident the two women who vandalized City Hall had nothing to do with the flags.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Central Police Department at 367-1254.
