Deja Vu: Peaselburg Planters Destroyed by Teenagers Again

In a repeat of last year's assault on Peaselburg's beautification efforts, some of the Covington neighborhood's planters have been destroyed again.

Two residents on Euclid Avenue saw a group of young teenage boys committing the act at around 11 p.m. Wednesday. According to the neighborhood Facebook page, residents could not identify the teens because it was too dark but said there five boys total. 

Multiple planters were tipped over and one was completely destroyed, costing the neighborhood association $150. Some of the flowers have been re-planted.

In May last year, the same neighborhood was targeted and several planters were completely destroyed.

A week and a half later, the teens involved in the destruction confessed their crimes at a neighborhood association meeting.

Covington Police Chief Spike Jones coincidentally is hosting his monthly chief's forum in Peaselburg Thursday evening at 6 p.m. at the Center for Great Neighborhoods (1650 Russell Street).
