    Danville officials announced Wednesday that the reward for information on vandals who covered a city war memorial with graffiti last month has been increased to $12,000.

    Thanks to donations from community organizations, Danville officials said they were able to increase the reward, which was previously just $6,500.

    The reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for vandalizing the memorial.

    Black and red spray-paint was discovered on the All Wars Memorial in Oak Hill Park on June 8 and is believed to have occurred sometime early that morning or late in the evening on June 7.
