Investigators for the Maryland Natural Resources Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating individuals who broke into and vandalized the Thomas Point Lighthouse between April 15-16.

On April 17, officers met with the lighthouse caretakers who had discovered the damage to the iconic Maryland landmark that sits in the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the South River.

Anyone with information regarding the break-in and damage is asked to call Officer Jeff Beshore or Officer Chris Neville at 1-800-628-9944.
