Digital Sign Vandalism at Agricenter
MEMPHIS, TN – The digital sign on Walnut Grove Road has been the target of felony vandalism. The sign was shot at by someone driving east along Walnut Grove during the night of February 14. “This is dangerous as the bullet could have gone through the billboard and could easily have hit a runner or one of our other guests on the property,” said John Butler, President of Agricenter International.
The Shelby County Sherriff’s Office has been notified and are investigating. There is a $2,500 reward offered leading to the arrest and conviction of the offender. Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH. Callers can remain anonymous.
As you may remember, in May 2015 the sign had been hit over 15 times and again three times in February 2016.
