Anti-Cargill stickers were placed on stop signs in several different areas of Wayzata over the weekend.
A police officer on routine patrol around 1 a.m. Sunday, May 6, first noticed the stickers on stop signs, under the word "stop," at all four corners of East Wayzata Boulevard, Ferndale Road North, West Wayzata Boulevard and Ferndale Road South.
The stickers were also found at the following locations and intersections:
- all four directions at East Lake Street/Ferndale Road North/West Lake Street/Ferndale Road South
- Elm Lane/Ferndale Road South
- Babcock Lane West/Elm Lane
- Highland Lane West/Ferndale Road South
- Peavey Road/Shoreline Drive
- Peavey Lane/Peavey Road (both east and west sides)
- all four directions at Highcroft Road and Peavey Road
- Highcroft Road/Ferndale Road West
- Harrington Road/Ferndale Road West
- Bovey Road/Ferndale Road West
- Highcroft Road/Ferndale Road South
- Peavey Lane/Ferndale Road South
No suspect information is being released at this time, according to the Wayzata Police Department.
Minnetonka police have been brought into the investigation because Cargill's headquarters is in their jurisdiction.
The company's website describes Cargill as a privately-held company and an international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services. The company is a favorite target of groups such as Occupy Wall Street, who view the company as controlling a monopoly on the food consumed by American citizens.
Anyone with information about the vandelism is asked to contact the Wayzata Police Department.
