University of Maine police are asking for the public’s help as they investigate a recent rash of sign vandalism on campus. Five building signs have been kicked and damaged since Wednesday, Oct. 26. Those signs are the blue markers for Cutler Health Center, Cumberland Hall, Aubert Hall, Oak Hall and Libby Hall. Police have recovered some physical evidence. They also ask anyone with information on these incidents to call the police department at 581-4040 or report anonymously online at the UMaine Police Department Web site. The damage to each sign is estimated at $1,200, mostly attributable to damage to the protective coating that prevents rust and corrosion.
