CAUGHT IN CAMERA: Lawn stolen from public space in downtown East Lansing

EAST LANSING, Michigan (WLNS) – The city of East Lansing says it has had an ongoing problem with theft and vandalism from public spaces outside the parking garage on Division Street.

In the pictures below you can see a group of three people rolling up a piece of lawn and taking it away.

The city says that, along with the East Lansing Downtown Development Authority and several donors, they have invested a lot of time and money to create spaces that people can enjoy during the pandemic.

“We appreciate those who have enjoyed these spaces responsibly. Unfortunately, negative behaviors, including theft and vandalism, remain an ongoing problem and have made it difficult to continue these space-clearing efforts, “said the City of East Lansing.

They also warned that a surveillance camera was being set up outside the parking garage on Division Street.

The city will ask if you know these people, email [email protected] or call 1-877-ELPD-TIP.

They also said if the item is returned no further action will be taken.
