On Sunday, December 22, 2013 at approximately 2:00 a.m., the Point Lookout lighthouse was broken into by 4 vandals (appears to be 3 males and 1 female). Two of the perpetrators have unique hairstyles that should make them easier to identify.
Anyone who can identify the individuals in the video is asked to call the Maryland Natural Resources Police at 301-645-0062 and leave a message for Officer Darryl Riley, who is investigating the case.
Please help the Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society (PLLPS) identify these individuals so they can make an example of their crime against the historic structure.
So far, with the public’s help, the (PLLPS) have prosecuted 3 individuals and are in the process of prosecuting 2 others.
