Team's tires slashed at Gold Beach

GOLD BEACH — Police are looking for both the culprits and help for the victims after someone slashed 34 tires on vehicles parked by members of the Gold Beach High basketball team while they were playing at a game in Glide.

The team returned by bus from the game about 4 a.m. Saturday to find the tires had been slashed on vehicles that players, coaches and volunteers had parked on school property.

Gold Beach Police Chief Dixon Andrews reported that 34 tires on 11 vehicles were destroyed, with a total value of between $8,000 and $10,000.

“The incident has caused a devastating financial hardship for many of the players, coaches and other school volunteers whose vehicles were damaged,” said Andrews in a press release. The school district, he said, was trying to establish a way to handle public donations toward helping out the victims.

Anyone with information regarding the incident can contact the Gold Beach Police Department at 541-247-6671. Anonymous tips can be provided through Curry County Crime Stoppers' reward program at 888-974-0000.
