MISSOULA — State wildlife officials are looking for information about several recent incidents of vandalism at the Kelly Island Fishing Access Site off Spurgin Road on the west side of Missoula.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) reports that several traffic signs and parking bumpers were damaged by spray paint and graffiti over the last month.

The first incident occurred sometime between Dec. 28 and Dec. 30 while the second incident happened between Jan. 14 and Jan. 21

"Crimes like this one are often solved because of leads provided by the public," FWP spokeswoman Vivaca Crowser noted in a news release.
