Reward offered for leads on gun-shot water tower

BROOKHAVEN — Officials are offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction related to vandalism at a Brookhaven water tower.

The Daily Leader reports two gunshots pierced the tank near the end of December and water was leaking from the tower. The tower was drained Tuesday and repairs have begun.

Officials say repairs will cost about $12,000.

Officials say there will be additional costs of sterilizing the tank, refilling it with water and sampling the water for purity.

City officials say if there’s an arrest, they will bring charges of destruction of city property.
