Supporters of the community garden offered a $1,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the people responsible for vandalizing the garden at Brook Run Park.
The reward was posted by community garden members, the city of Dunwoody and former DeKalb County CEO Liane Levetan, according to the city.
Dunwoody Police Sgt. Jason Witcher said police have stepped up patrols at night around Brook Run.
Those responsible for the damage “would be looking at criminal damage to property, which is a felony,” he said, and would face a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Late on the night of March 30, vandals broke into the garden and destroyed plants, equipment and nocked over birdhouses containing bluebird nests.
Garden volunteer Bob Lundsten said bluebird houses were knocked off the fences, causing eggs to fall out of nests.
“That’s just downright cruel and mean, in addition to the damage that was done,” Lundsten said.
Lundsten said volunteers spent the entire weekend repairing the damage, which he estimated cost between $2,000 and $4,000.
