U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement seeks information concerning vandalism to Jordan Cave archaeological site near the Jordan Trailhead parking lot in Sedona (Red Rock Ranger District). Individuals threw rocks from the sites' walls & prehistoric floor over an embankment.
Law Enforcement is trying to identify and locate the above individuals.
“These prehistoric sites are rare treasures on our public lands and the Forest Service takes every effort to preserve and protect those resources,” said Patrol Captain Jon Nelson. “Once these sites are damaged, it removes a piece of the puzzle of how past communities lived an existed over time that cannot be replaced. It not only destroys scientific evidence, it denies the public from seeing these areas as they were left by the Pueblo people who lived here centuries ago.”
It is illegal to excavate, remove, damage, alter or deface any archaeological resource, to include surface collecting. These acts of vandalism and theft to protected sites are found under the Archaeological Resource Protection Act of 1979, under Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations 261.9(g), which makes it a criminal violation under federal law. The severity of the crime ranges from a Class B Misdemeanor, which is six months in jail and a $5,000 fine, to a felony, which is one year in jail and/or $20,000 fine. Anyone with information regarding this vandalism should contact Officer Mike O’Neil at 928-203-7512.
