BLM Offers Reward for Information on Recent Vandalism


The BLM is offering a reward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for dumping a concrete parking barrier inside the Glendive Short Pine OHV Area vault toilet.  The incident occurred sometime between Saturday, June 26 and Tuesday, June 29, 2010.  Glendive Short Pine Off-Highway Vehicle Area is located six miles south of Glendive, off Dawson County Road 335.

“Destruction of public property has a cost that affects us all,” said Dena Lang, who is the BLM outdoor recreation planner in charge of the area. “This senseless act cost the taxpayer $1,000 and additional man-hours to fix. This is time and money that could have been better used to the public’s benefit, elsewhere.”

Information regarding the vandalism may be referred to BLM Law Enforcement at (406)233-2800 or by calling 1-800-TIP-MONT.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
