Carterville, Illinois swing vandalism

CARTERVILLE, IL (KFVS) -

People can once again use the wheelchair accessible swings at Cannon Park in Carterville.

Crews cleaned up the mess after vandals dug out sealant from around the frame posts and spread it on the new surfacing.

They also tangled the swings together and filled them with straw.

According to the group that organized the playground, there is a $1,350 reward to whoever turns in the vandals to Carterville police.

Call police if you have any information about the damage to the swings.

Meanwhile expect to see more of these type of swings in Williamson County.

Organizers plan to install similar ones at parks in Crainville and Cambria.
