Waterbury police are looking for the people they say are responsible for vandalism at the Silas Bronson Library Wednesday afternoon.

Police responded to the library at 267 Grand Street around 1:10 p.m. after getting a criminal mischief complaint.

Officers were told two ATV quads and one dirt bike were seen riding through Library Park, damaging the lawn area and leaving tire tread marks on the library’s field and surrounding sidewalks.  

Waterbury police describe the suspects as three men in their early 20s, one of which was wearing a purple helmet, grey shirt and black sweatpants with tattoos, another wearing a black helmet, purple shirt and grey jeans and the other wearing a blue shirt and black jeans. 

Officials said this is not the first time they've had issues with ATV riders.

"They’ve been operated by a number of different people from juveniles up to adults there’s a lot of reckless behavior that they engage in. There’s been some accidents with bystanders who were trying to travel the road there’s been some accident with injuries with the operators himself and it’s quite a problem," Waterbury Police Chief Fernando Spagnolo said.

Waterbury police are asking anyone with further information to contact the Waterbury Detective Bureau at (203) 574-6941 or Crime Stoppers at (203) 755-1234.
