Smithville Police have made three arrests in a vandalism investigation at Greenbrook Park.

Chief Mark Collins said 19-year-old Daisy Morales and 19-year-old Alex Diaz Vidal are each charged with vandalism over $1,000 and burglary. A juvenile was also involved and will be charged in a juvenile petition. Both Morales and Vidal have been released on their own recognizance and will appear in General Sessions Court on October 6.

The three are believed to have entered the park sometime late Monday night or early Tuesday morning and spray-painted vulgar graffiti on the amphitheater and playground equipment.

Greenbrook Park was closed Tuesday and is closed today (Wednesday) as city employees work to remove the paint.

“I want to commend my officers and detectives for getting on this case and making an arrest quickly,” said Chief Collins.
