Carmel police investigating vandalism of steel planters recently placed along bike lane

CARMEL, Ind. – The Carmel Police Department is searching for those responsible for vandalizing several planter boxes along Range Line Road.

Officers believe the boxes were vandalized with spray-paint sometime between 10:30 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

The planters, which also act as steel barriers, were just placed along a bike lane within the past two weeks.

Since being installed, some residents have criticized the City for spending more than $142,000 on the project, saying there must have been cheaper alternatives. Jeremy Kashman, a city engineer, stood behind the decision last week, saying these planters made the most sense.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact Carmel police at 317-571-2551 or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
