Vandals have caused $500 damage to Richfield’s storywalk trail.

The 16 storyboards along the 1.3-mile Carter Pedigo Trail were destroyed sometime in the last few days, Richfield police said in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

The trail is next to the Richfield Branch of the Akron-Summit County Library.

The popular trail, featured in a June 1 Beacon Journal report, opened in April 2013.

Children and adults can read a picture book with stops at the trailside kiosks.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to contact detective Amy Ellis at 330-659-9500.
