    Police have identified a suspect in the repeated vandalism of a soldier’s memorial. Glastonbury Police said, over the last three weeks, officers received multiple reports of vandalism to the Sgt. David Coullard memorial. Coullard was a Marine Corps sniper and Glastonbury, Connecticut native. He was killed in action in Iraq, 2005. The Coullard memorial is located on Belle Woods Drive in a peaceful alcove surrounded by trees with a bench and a brick walkway. The memorial itself is made of stone and a metal plaque.  Following an investigation, police said they have identified a 14-year-old Glastonbury boy who is responsible for damage made to the memorial on multiple occasions. The Marine Corps League has replaced Sgt. Coullard’s memorial - they did so after each incident, police said. Officers said they anticipate restitution for the vandalism. Due to the juvenile status of the suspect, he will not be identified by the police. 
    The popular swimming spot, Cotton Hollow in Glastonbury, has been shut down indefinitely due to safety concerns. On Monday, July 20, Glastonbury Police said Cotton Hollow has seen a “significant increase” in use recently and emergency personnel has been called to the area to save cliff jumpers, police said. Police were also critical of the extra trash thrown around the natural spot. “Of particular concern is broken glass along the trails and possibly in the water,” said Police Chief Marshall S. Porter in a statement. Porter said that before reopening Cotton Hollow, the town should investigate whether swimming and cliff jumping is safe there as well as the level of risk people are taking to go down a trail with steep drop-offs that may have been made worse by the increase in traffic. Once these issues are addressed, Porter said he would like to see Cotton Hollow open again. The area will be monitored for compliance with the ban, he said. Photos of Cotton Hollow posted to local Facebook pages noted the parking lot has been full lately. This kicked...
