*** PRESS RELEASE June 12, 2019 ***
Eagle Mountain - This morning Deputies assigned in Eagle Mountain responded to three separate reports of vandalism in the Silver Lake area on the east side of the city. Someone spray painted graffiti on an LDS meetinghouse, a fence, a power box, and a bathroom at a city park. Staff at the Utah County Sheriff's Office - Eagle Mountain Division made a Facebook post and added photos of the graffiti found on the church. A woman who saw the graffiti saw it and believed her son was involved. After talking to her son Deputies were able to identify a second person involved in the graffiti incidents. Both boys are juveniles. They admitted to spray painting different areas during the day earlier this week. The graffiti found on the park bathroom is not believed to have been put there by these juveniles. Investigators are following up on leads in this incident. The victims are grateful to the mother who did the right thing in helping her son by calling the Sheriff's Office!
