The El Paso County Sheriff's Office no more than got its traffic apparatus set up for traffic enforcement before someone trashed it.

If you know about that, collect $1,000 in reward money by providing information to the Sheriff's Office that leads to an arrest.

The office set up the EPSO SMART Trailer near Highway 83 and Northgate Boulevard on May 2 for targeted enforcement.

"Upon returning to the location on May 7, 2019, it was discovered the trailer had been vandalized and significantly damaged," the office said in a release.
Damages included:

Two slashed tires
Two tail lights broken
One radar lens destroyed
Radar gun destroyed and dislocated
Radar wires severed
Hitch cable severed
Door locking mechanism damaged
License plate removed
Tempered glass window shattered
Locking mechanism for speed limit sign destroyed
Damage to door cabinet
"Despite obvious efforts to try and pry open the door, the subjects responsible did not acquire access [to] the trailer’s mainframe; subsequently, there was no damage to the computer," the release says, noting damage is estimated to run into the thousands of dollars.

To report tips, call 520-6666.
