Vandal beware: there is now a $200 reward on your head!

The cash reward for information that leads to the discovery of who vandalized the Selinsgrove Commons was recently matched by Grove activist Carol Handlin.

“It is important to me that we find out who is doing this. The vandalism has to stop,” Carol Handlin, who takes care of the Commons, told the Orange Street News.

“We are going to get to the bottom of this,” added Handlin.

Email all tips to or call 570-259-9874. The Orange Street News will keep everyone anonymous and will hand the money over no questions asked!

The plant haters struck the Selinsgrove Commons again last week, tipping one of the large planters over, spreading a mess of dirt everywhere, and making off with a large shrub.

Cases of vandalism have been on the rise in Selinsgrove.

Menaces have been tearing up plants, stealing lights, egging houses, defacing gravestones, damaging local businesses, and even leaving drugs at the park.

Police say they are helpless to stop the vandalism, and have instead told residents to keep their cars in their garage to prevent damage.

Even a picture of one of the vandals wasn’t enough.

The Borough promises a fifth police officer will be on patrol this Spring.

Any one with information or to report cases of vandalism please email
