Dartmouth Police seeking assistance from public concerning hate crime investigation



DARTMOUTH, MA – Dartmouth Police are looking for the public’s help to catch a hate crime suspect.

According to police, on Saturday, at approximately 5:00 p.m., Dartmouth Police responded to the Burgo Basketball Association facility, located at 101 Slocum Road, to gather information associated with a hate crime.

Upon arrival, officers were shown a dumpster on which a derogatory term was spray-painted.

As there are currently no suspects, the Dartmouth Police Department is requesting assistance from the public in obtaining any information or video footage from the area that may assist in identifying one.

According to Chief of Police, Brian P. Levesque, “I am extremely discouraged and upset by this egregious and heinous act of vandalism. It is certainly the hope of every member of the Dartmouth Police Department that if someone has information that can help us identify a suspect that they will immediately come forward with it.”

PD also stated that recently there was a tagging at the DYAA – Crapo Field facility, where the vandal painted some words rather largely on the dugout wall making reference to part(s) of the male anatomy.

Anyone with information can contact the Dartmouth Police Department directly by calling 508-910-1735. In addition, anonymous tips can also be submitted by using the Dartmouth Police Department Tip411 system.

    If the Dartmouth police were REALLY interesting in catching this idiot or idiots, they’d provide a bit more information than “derogatory”.
