An investigation continues by the South Pasadena Police after eight Ginkgo trees were snapped off last weekend.
Residents began informing the South Pasadena Review on Saturday night that the trees had been vandalized.
Measuring about 9-feet ball, one of the trees was torn down to almost its base, one foot in height.
“It’s terrible,” said South Pasadena Police Chief Art Miller. “We’re still investigating it.”
Miller said he’s hopeful that surveillance cameras from local businesses picked up the person responsible for breaking off the trees.
The crime took place in front of a cement wall fronting the South Pasadena Unified School District in the 1000 block of Mission Street, directly across from Mike and Anne’s Restaurant.
Gabe Nevarez, the city’s public works project manager, said the estimated cost of each of the trees is valued at $700.
