Shepherd Police Department investigating walking trail bench vandalism

The Shepherd Police Department is currently searching for the individuals who defaced the benches which sit alongside the Shepherd Trail. Chief Sawyer posted on October 31:


This morning we were notified that several of the benches on the walk trail (beside the RR tracks) were vandalized with graffiti. I have attached several edited pictures. It seems as though our Department is not at the top of their Christmas list as one says…F***K Shepherd PoPo’s and another says F***K Sawyer.

It is believed this took place within the past 24 hours. This area of the trail is directly across from the playground on Federal Road.

A private citizen has offered a $250 reward for the identification and prosecution of the person or persons.

If you have any knowledge of this incident you can call our office at 989-828-5045 or e-mail

It is unfortunate when some misguided individuals (putting it in nice terms…this is a family page) decide to destroy property of others. Let’s make a statement that this WILL NOT be tolerated in our community!
