SPD looking for help

The Superior Police Department needs your help reporting crimes. Over the past few weeks there has been a significant amount of new graffiti appearing in both public and private locations throughout town as well as several reports of gunshots.

Those gun shots created significant damaged to the marquee at the Superior Unified School district.

Superior Police is asking for your help to arrest those committing these crimes. The SPD has set up an anonymous tip system.

Anyone with information on the shootings or graffiti or any other crime can call the Superior Police Department at 520-689-5254 and leave an anonymous tip. The caller does not have to leave any identifying information but each call will be assigned a number to allow the department to keep track of the information.

“We suspect that these crimes are happening at night, anyone who may have seen a group or individual gathering around these crime areas are encouraged to call us,” explained Superior Police Chief Lou Digirolamo.

Digirolamo also explained that it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to be in possession of spray paint and that based on the size of the graffiti markings they are “taking their time to tag the structures”

During the weekend of Oct. 20, the new marquee at the school was shot by a firearm. Last week the Superior Sun reported that there was a $750 reward for the arrest of the person who shot the marquee.

The reward money is coming from $500 from the Superior Police Department RICO funds and $250 from the Superior School district. The funds are not coming from the Pinal County Sheriff’s office RICO funds as originally reported.

Anyone with information on these recent criminal activities is encouraged to call the Superior Police Department at 520-689-5254. Callers can choose to identify themselves or submit information anonymously.
