Edmonds police asking for help to find city park vandals

Edmonds — Edmonds police are looking for the people accused of continuously vandalizing city parks.

Over $10,000 in damage has occurred to several parks and restroom facilities in Edmonds, often causing them to be closed to the public. One restroom was even set on fire, according to the Edmonds Police Department.

The vandals have also left graffiti with hate speech, symbols and slurs, police say.

The areas that have been affected are Brackett’s Landing North Park, Olympic Beach (Fishing Pier), Hickman Park and Seaview Park.

During the Seaview Park vandalism on Saturday, three teenage boys were seen leaving the area in an older, maroon, BMW 6 series convertible, between 4 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. One was described as a light-skinned, black male, according to police.

Police say they need the community’s help identifying the teenagers and are asking residents who live near Seaview Park to check their home video for any related footage.

Call 425-407-3999 or email policetips@edmondswa.gov with information.

Police also say to call 911 immediately if something looks suspicious.
