Duluth Police Looking For Vandals Who Damaged Union Gospel Mission
Sometimes you just have to shake your head and wonder what's wrong with some people when stories like this present themselves. The Duluth Police Department is looking for vandals who recently damaged the Union Gospel Mission and surrounding buildings.
The damage not only included graffiti, but also signs being ripped down and parts of the building actually torn off. The Union Gospel Mission's sole purpose is to feed and help people in the Northland, so the motive behind this is especially hard to fathom.
According to the Duluth Police Facebook post from Tuesday, October 19:
A staff member at Union Gospel Mission, located at 219 E 1st St, reported damage to the outside of the building on Monday, October 4. Damage was also down to surrounding buildings in the 200 block of E 1st St. Responding officers spoke to the staff member who said that the damage occurred between 6 p.m., Saturday, October 2, and 10 a.m., Sunday, October 3.
Damage to the Union Gospel Mission and the surrounding buildings included multiple signs that were ripped down, siding that was torn off, and graffiti painted on the building.
The Duluth Police Department also shared photos of some of the damage done, which you can see below.
While there were no surveillance photos or video of the damage being done, the Duluth Police Department is attempting to locate the individual(s) responsible for this property damage and would like any information that will help them catch whoever was involved.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Duluth Police Property and Financial Crimes Unit at 218-730-5160.
