Sad incident in the Highland Park Police blotter this week:
Between 5 p.m. May 13 and 7:30 a.m. May 17, someone destroyed a memorial bench in the 4800 block of Lakeside Drive and threw the bench into Exall Lake. The bench is dedicated to Rebecca Rose Gunn, and is valued between $350 and $750.
I did some stupid stuff in high school (breaking and entering rings a bell), but this seems really low. I hope the bench can be replaced quickly, and without asking the Gunn family for some more cash.
