The Oregon State Police will lead an investigation into vandalism of a natural rock formation at Cape Kiwanda Stats Natural Area (http://bit.ly/capekiwandavandalism). The investigation will determine how to pursue possible violations of state park rules and Oregon laws in response to video showing visitors to the park pushing the landmark sandstone feature, known as the duckbill, to the ground in late August. The investigation will be based out of the Oregon State Police Tillamook Worksite.
The State Police will be working in close concert with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and the Tillamook District Attorney’s office. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and Oregon State Police extend their thanks and gratitude to people who have already come forward with information. People with information about the incident can email tips to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Oregon State Police Northern Command Center dispatch at 1-800-452-7888. All calls are kept confidential. There is no new information about the people pictured in the video at this time.
