Gust 2.tif

One of Grantsburg’s famous founders is memorialized with a statue and over the weekend the glass incasing a statue of Big Gust was broken.

There were no reported injuries from the incident and the statue remained unharmed. The statue is still in place on S. Pine Street in Grantsburg with a piece of plywood covering where the glass was broken.

Grantsburg Police Chief Dan Wald said there were no reports on the apartments being broken into. They are also investigating an incident that occurred Saturday night. Wald said that Grantsburg Police Officer Bridget Getts responded to a call Saturday night at T-Dawgs.

Wald explained that somehow pipes in the men’s bathroom connected to the urinal were separated.

It is unclear if the pipe was broken or if it burst, but what the police do know is that there was water “all over place,” according to Wald.
