Belleville Police Service – Popular Park Vandalized Again

In Police Blotter

For the second time in about a month, a popular park created to assist those in the community with special needs has been vandalized.

City of Belleville municipal parks staff reached out to police Monday morning after graffiti was discovered again on buildings located at the ‘Field of Ability’ along Sidney Street.

Staff provided police with CCTV footage and a still image of the suspect, who painted distinctive markings on the roll-up doors and walls of an outbuilding at the site, similar to those from an incident in April.

According to timestamps on the CCTV footage, the incident occurred shortly before midnight, Saturday.

The facility, which is located at the Parkdale Veterans Park, is unique and marked an important milestone in the city’s history in 2022 when it opened. The facility provides a rubberized field to welcome those with special needs for games of baseball.

Please see images below, and note that due to the fact the CCTV footage utilized infrared, clothing appears lighter due to various factors such as material composition, fabric thickness, and color.

Given this, the male suspect appears to be wearing dark-colored clothing, baseball hat, backpack with reflective elements and a skateboard.

Anyone with information about the suspect, who is observed wearing a coat and backpack or the distinctive markings is asked to contact Const. Josh Woodcock at jwoodcock@bellevilleps.ca or Crime Stoppers at 613-969-8477. You can also submit anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers via https://crimestoppersquinte.ca
