Vandals spray paint profanity, set fire to property

DUMAS - The Dumas Police and Fire Departments are investigating a string of vandalism and arson that happened late Saturday night.

Police were first called to a fire in the 400 block of Spruce Avenue just after 10:30 Saturday night. A detached garage was on fire. Shortly after putting out that fire, another garage fire was reported down the street.

Olly and Frances Verway say they lost electricity and found their detached garage on fire. A mini-van and dozens of expensive tools inside the garage were destroyed.

Several homes on Spruce Avenue were spray painted with profane words and "SUR 13."

The crimes are still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Moore County Crimestoppers at 806-935-8477, or submit tips on the Dumas Police Department website.
