BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Rewards are being offered in the case of vandalism to property at the site of Rt. 522 Bypass work.

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Department reports the crime to Trumbull Company property occurred last weekend.

Several pieces of heavy construction equipment were vandalized, and two-way radios and helmets stolen from Trumbull resulting in several thousand dollars in losses, according to Morgan County Sheriff KC Bohrer.
