Press release from VCU Communications and Public Relations

RICHMOND, VA - The Virginia Commonwealth University Police Department and the City of Richmond Police Department are seeking the public's help in identifying several individuals who caused property damage on March 27 during the celebration in the streets after the VCU men's basketball team earned a visit to the NCCA Final Four.

VCU Police Chief John Venuti said the crowds were well behaved for the most part but that any time a group grows to that size there are property damage reports and police want to send the message that it won't be tolerated.
