LINCOLN PARK, Mich. -- Police in Lincoln Park are searching for vandals who destroyed a statue dedicated to a soldier who lost his life in Iraq.
All that remains of the statue in Veteran’s Park is a pair of bronze boots. The rest of the memorial has been pried away.
The memorial was built about eight months ago for Sgt. Craig Frank, a member of the Michigan National Guard who died in Iraq in 2004.
According to the Fallen Hero Memorial Foundation, the community raised thousands of dollars in record time to build the memorial.
If you have any information about the vandals, contact Lincoln Park Police.
