Trump National Golf Club Offers $10,000 Reward For Information On Vandals

PALOS VERDES (CBSLA.com) — A $10,000 reward was offered Tuesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever vandalized the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes.

The damage was done between the hours of 5 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. during the weekend of March 11 and 12, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

A video shows about five suspects defacing the the fifth green by carving “NO MORE TIGERS NO MORE WOODS” into the grass.

The club is offering the reward. The club says the vandals caused $20,000 in damage.

A group that calls itself an “anonymous environmental activist collective” sent the Washington Post the video, which shows suspects in dark clothes scaling a fence and using gardening tools to carve the six-feet-tall letters, the sheriff’s department reported.

The group also sent a statement to the newspaper explaining the vandalism was a response to the Trump administration’s “blatant disregard for the environment.”

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call sheriff’s Detective Marcello Curko at (310) 891-3244 or Sgt. Ricky Osburn at (310) 891-3205.

    Sadly, when someone like this assumes perhaps the most important position in the world, yet does not have the intelligence, stamina, or regard for humanity do it justice… this type of uprising among the people will happen… and nobody will even shake a fist at $10,000. This is just the beginning, unless the current administration abruptly changes course and acknowledges the people who initially supported them, and have so far been let down and lied to. The people of the United States want something. We want change for the better, NOT change to better the already better off. Things are getting harder and harder for the average
    American with a family to raise… even more so since this administration has come to power, ACKNOWLEDGE US, listen to us, or accept the consequences. I cannot control what will happen if you do not… I can only warn of what may come by analyzing history. Do YOUR JOB WELL… or LET IT GO.
