Concord police are investigating incidents of vandalism found along two sets of walking trails in the eastern portion of the city.

The first report was made to police on Aug. 28. Lt. Sean Ford said a bench and observation area on the Batchelder Mills Trail – which is just north of Curtisville Road – was spray painted with multiple florescent colors.

Similar graffiti was found in the area of the Broken Ground Trail, which runs south of Curtisville Road near Mill Brook School. Officers observed paint on footbridges and boardwalks, as well as damage to trees. The graffiti included various phrases, including “Donald Trump 4 EVR,” and “American Swashbuckler N.H.”

Police ask anyone with information about the vandalism to contact Ford at 225-8600 or the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100. Information can also be submitted anonymously online at www.concordregionalcrimeline.com.
