Police have identified a suspect in the repeated vandalism of a soldier’s memorial.
Glastonbury Police said, over the last three weeks, officers received multiple reports of vandalism to the Sgt. David Coullard memorial. Coullard was a Marine Corps sniper and Glastonbury, Connecticut native. He was killed in action in Iraq, 2005.
The Coullard memorial is located on Belle Woods Drive in a peaceful alcove surrounded by trees with a bench and a brick walkway. The memorial itself is made of stone and a metal plaque.
Following an investigation, police said they have identified a 14-year-old Glastonbury boy who is responsible for damage made to the memorial on multiple occasions.
The Marine Corps League has replaced Sgt. Coullard’s memorial - they did so after each incident, police said. Officers said they anticipate restitution for the vandalism.
Due to the juvenile status of the suspect, he will not be identified by the police.
