Caught on Cam: Vandal Smashes Poconos Ice Sculpture

Police seek ice sculpture vandal caught on security video during Poconos 'Winterfest'

Police are trying to find a man who vandalized an ice sculpture during a Winterfest celebration in eastern Pennsylvania.

Surveillance video posted on Facebook by Dreher Insurance in Stroudsburg shows a man walking past a sculpture about 7:40 p.m. Saturday, then toppling it to the ground and running off screen.

Businesses along Stroudsburg's Main Street paid $260 each for some 30 sculptures displayed along the sidewalks.

Stroud Area Regional Police say they've received no other reports about ice sculpture vandalism. But they say whoever damaged the Dreher-sponsored statue could be charged with criminal mischief.
