Police crack down on flower vandals
Every season, individuals and businesses sponsor potted flowers along the bridges on Everett Street, above, and Slope Street, through the Swain County Chamber of Commerce. The chamber also sponsors potted flowers along Everett and Main Streets. Last Thursday, the flowers were vandalized on Slope Street. Bryson City Police encountered a 17-year-old boy who was throwing flowers and dirt on vehicles, said Police Chief Greg Jones. He was charged as an adult with damage to personal property, disorderly conduct and violent conduct with abusive language.
