SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The Sioux City Police Department (SCPD) has made an arrest following the vandalism on the Bandshell at Grandview Park on June 25.
The damage could cost the city thousands of dollars.
The SCPD responded to a report of a person spray painting graffiti on the Bandshell at Grandview Park around 6:49 a.m. Thursday.
Officers that responded to the report located a person hiding in the park, which the reporting witness claimed was the person responsible for the graffiti.
Officers then arrested Estaven A. Avila, 23, of Sioux City, for criminal mischief in the third-degree, possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Avila is being held in the Woodbury County Jail on a $3,300 bond.
City crews were unable to provide an exact estimate for repairing the damage due to the special procedures and considerations required to preserve the Bandshell.
City crews were able to remove the spray paint Thursday afternoon.
Sunday’s concert at the Bandshell will still go on as planned.
