More Meter Mischief


Officers are investigating 21 meters that were vandalized overnight along the 100 block of Beach Drive N.E. and Bayshore Dr. in downtown St. Petersburg. This is the third case of meter vandalism downtown, causing several thousand dollars of damage.

The vandal used spray foam sealant to damage the meters. This is the same method used in the two other cases.

Investigators are canvassing the area for video. In the meantime, city employees are taking the meters apart and cleaning them.

I’ll be posting video and photos on social media soon.
