Shephard farm house in Cottage Grove damaged in break-in

Vandals damaged an unoccupied home on the historic Shephard farmstead in Cottage Grove. Police were called to the property in the 8800 block of 70th Street on Aug. 8, after it was discovered someone had broken into a home.

There was $300 damage to the property and an obscenity scratched into a wall inside the house, according to the police report.

The farm was turned over to the Dodge Nature Center last year.
