Blaine County Montana: Severe Vandalism Shocked Residents

Date:

The Blaine County Sheriff’s Office says that two people have been charged in connection with “extensive” vandalism that happened in mid-August.

Jasper J. Wendland, 19, and Devon C. Nelson, 18, have been charged with several felonies and misdemeanors, according to a news release from Blaine County Sheriff John Colby.

The news release states: “There was an extensive amount of damage, hundreds of thousands of dollars inflicted on the farm equipment, wildlife, and land.”

The Gasovda family says that damage on its property in southern Blaine County is believed to have happened on either August 17 or August 18.

After the devastating news hit the town, friends, family, and neighbors jumped in to help.

“It was shocking. It was numb. You go through so many emotions. Why would somebody do this?” said Cortney Gasvoda, the owner of the damaged equipment. “How do you even prepare for something like this?”
