Some­one put goo­gly eyes on his­toric mon­u­ment

The Citizens' Voice - - NATION / WORLD -

A Ge­or­gia city is search­ing for a van­dal who put goo­gly eyes on a his­toric mon­u­ment.

A post on the City of Sa­van­nah Gov­ern­ment Face­book page asks: “Who did this?! ... It may look funny but harm­ing our his­toric mon­u­ments and pub­lic prop­erty is no laugh­ing mat­ter, in fact, it’s a crime.”

Po­lice spokes­woman Ke­tu­rah Greene says po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent in­volv­ing the Nathanael Greene Mon­u­ment, which was re­ported Thurs­day.

Greene was a ma­jor gen­eral in the Con­ti­nen­tal Army dur­ing the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War, and is buried in John­son Square near his mon­u­ment.

The Sa­van­nah Morn­ing News re­ports crim­i­nal tres­pass is a mis­de­meanor of­fense in Ge­or­gia. How­ever, if the dam­age is more than $500, it’s a felony called crim­i­nal dam­age to prop­erty.
