Local News

MANDEVILLE, La.(WDSU) —The Mandeville Police Department is looking for the person or persons who vandalized a makeshift memorial for fallen officer, Capt. Vincent Liberto Jr.

Liberto, who served 25 years with the department, was shot and killed following a police pursuit in Sept. of 2019.

On Facebook, the department explained it had planned to clean up the memorial and replace tattered flags with something permanent. But the post said “some evil, hate filled individual/s thought it better to desecrate the site.”

The department went on to describe the act as “disgusting” and “disrespectful.”

Mandeville PD is now asking for leads. Anyone with information can call 985-626-9711.
