Police seek car suspected of Savannah vandalism

Posted: Updated:

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Police in Savannah have obtained surveillance video of a car seen spinning circles in a park that honor soldiers killed and wounded in the 1779 Battle of Savannah during the American Revolution.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police say the purple or dark blue Ford Mustang fastback is believed to be responsible for vandalism that left as much as $25,000 in damage to the Soldiers Stone Monument at Battlefield Memorial Park on March 2. The monument features 800 granite stones that sit atop submerged pylons and represent those who died or were wounded.

Authorities say the vandals damaged more than 70 stones. Thirty-five of them had to be removed completely, officials have said.

The car appears purple in the video, but may be a color the Ford Motor Co. calls "vista blue."
