The MCSO was notified this week that there was damage to the tower. The tower which sits off of C Road in the desert had to be shut down to access the damages. They found damage to the radar dish and the red warning lights. If it needs to be replaced, it will cost upwards of $250,000.

The tower is operating, and no air traffic was affected. There were 7 areas of damage found on the tower.

If you have any information about this crime please contact the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 242-6707 or Crime Stoppers at 241-7867. Information reported to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest can earn you up to $1,000 cash reward and you will remain completely anonymous.
