ST. GEORGE, Utah, Jan. 31, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — A fire and other vandalism to bathrooms at St. George’s St. James Park have caused thousands of dollars in damage, a statement from the St. George Police Department says.

The park is a popular area along the Mayor’s Loop bike path, it says.

“Sadly, there has been MAJOR damage to the bathrooms almost daily for the past week,” the statement says.

“Fires have been started in the toilet paper dispensers causing thousands of dollars in smoke damage. Signs ripped off the outside walls.
