Sign vandalized over weekend; Welcome to “oise” State!

A “Boise State University,” sign on the corner of West University Drive and West Boise Avenue was vandalized on the night of Thursday, Feb. 9, when the metal letter “B,” was stolen from the wall.

“Despite the theft, this community is strong in its morals and values which allow our city to be one of the most livable cities in the nation,” said Boise Police Department Lieutenant Rob Gallas. “When we allow individuals to deface property—and deprive others of such property—it sends a message that future disrespect will be tolerated.”

If anyone has any information regarding the whereabouts of the “B,” or about the party or parties responsible, the Boise Police Department has requested them to call the Department of Public Safety at 208-426-6911, Boise Police Department substation at 426-6911 or Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS. The caller’s identity will be kept anonymous.

“Trying to solve a crime such as this, without input from the community, is very difficult,” Gallas said.
