Woman pleads not guilty in connection to Uncle Sam vandalism


TROY, N.Y. –  The Mechanicville woman who was arrested in connection to the vandalism of an Uncle Sam statue in Troy, has pleaded not guilty to her charge.

Twenty-three-year-old Sabrina Anderson is accused of taking the "Uncle Rainbow" statue's head from the crime scene and bringing it to her home. The statue, located in downtown Troy on Fourth Street, was beheaded on August 10th. 

She is not suspected of inflicting the damage on the statue but is accused of taking the head from the crime scene.

Police say Anderson turned herself in on Tuesday.

No arrests have been made related to the Criminal Mischief of the statue.

A photo of a man suspected of beheading another Uncle Sam Statue was released on Wednesday.

It has been five months since the City of Troy unveiled 30 Uncle Sam fiberglass statues placed throughout the city decorated by artists and school children, known as "The Uncle Sam Project."
