Following tips from the public, the Dixon Police Department has identified two female suspects accused of vandalizing the base of the Reagan statue in the Dixon Riverfront Plaza, according to the Dixon Police Department. “Black • Lives • Matter” was written in blue Tuesday July 14, 2020 on the north side of the cement base ring of the Ronald Reagan statue. Also, on the cement ring that encircles the base of the statue, were two imprinted blue handprints.

The suspects were not named in the Dixon Police Department release, and the original Tweet seeking help with identification of the suspects was removed from the police department’s official Twitter timeline.
