Tamaqua Police are investigating an act of criminal mischief that took place at the South Ward Playground on Friday.

Officers were dispatched to the playground, at 299 Penn St., at 3:51 p.m. and met with Lee Calkins of the playground association. According to the report, a man identified as Michael Wimer, 25, had used a pocket knife to damage one of the benches at the park. Wimer had told Calkins he lived at 215 E. Elm St., Tamaqua, but when the officer checked, neighbors said the residents of that address had been evicted.

Anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of Wimer may contact police at (570) 668-6100.
