Santa Fe Police have released surveillance videos they say show three suspects in vandalism at the Plaza caught in the act.
The videos from Monday June 22 show people riding bicycles on the streets near the Plaza just before 2 am. One video, apparently shot from under the portal along San Francisco Street, shows far-away figures spray painting the monument.
Santa Fe Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons involved in the vandalism, and police have said they believe the activity is related to severe damage the same night at India Palace restaurant a few blocks away. There's also a $1,000 reward in that case.
