ANKENY, Iowa – Police in Ankeny are hoping the public can help them locate two suspects they say caused up to $75,000 in damage to a new extension of the High Trestle Trail.

Police say the damage happened on October 2nd just before 6:30 p.m. when an unidentified male and female rode their bikes on newly poured concrete, on the extension of the High Trestl Trail east of the Ankeny Police Department.

The two left footprints and tire tracks embedded in about 300 yards of partly dry cement. They also wrote in the cement prior to it drying.
