The Bureau of Land Management is seeking information to help identify the person or persons who vandalized trailhead kiosks on public lands near Moab. This past weekend, someone cut down three large BLM wooden kiosks and knocked over a “Stop Highway Crossing” sign along State Highway 313, according to spokesperson Lisa Bryant.

“We are particularly concerned because of the public safety hazard created by this weekend’s vandalism as it destroyed important safety and trail information,” said Moab Field Manager Nicollee Gaddis-Wyatt. “The BLM appreciates the concerned citizen who reported the incident and provided photographs, allowing us to act promptly.”

Anyone with information that can help the BLM with its investigation can call the BLM Moab Law Enforcement team at 435-259-2109. The BLM is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.
