The amount of vandalism, destruction of property and vehicle breaking and entering is a blight in our community. I’m hearing of multiple instances of this taking place on Orcas. So depressing.
I sincerely ask, what is the Sheriff doing about it?
Is there any investigation or plan to combat the dozens of occurrences of these crimes?
