A rash of vandalism that's hit the Girl Scouts in Bartlesville. News on 6 reporter Emory Bryan says it's like bleeding to death from a thousand paper cuts - the Girl Scout office in Bartlesville has had 18 months of vandalism that's beginning to add up.

The office is in the middle of a neighborhood and it's got a playground so children are often around it. Over the summer especially - they've had all sorts of vandalism - this past weekend someone cut up their flag and hoisted it back up the pole.

Kim Lynch with the Girl Scouts’ Bluestem Council: "You can't put your finger on who's doing it, we presume juveniles, but who knows?"

The vandals have torn up the gutters, beat up on security cameras and marked up the playground equipment.

They're hoping a little attention will lead someone with information on the crime to call the Bartlesville Police.
