Keep your eyes open on social media & YouTube, people - there may be a short video about this that eventually surfaces somewhere. The kind of persons who vandalize, typically can't keep it to themselves for very long. The bigger the vandalism, the bigger the urge to brag about it. These two particular incidents of vandalism at Bandelier National Monument near Los Alamos, New Mexico, occurred in August 2017 and May 2018. They appear to have been very, very big indeed.
KRQE News reported on August 22, 2018: "The National Park Service needs the public's help finding a vandal....Park officials are in disbelief at the damage done at an archeological site called Duchess Castle at Bandelier National Monument in Los Alamos earlier this summer...."

From the KRQE News report, "The site has been significantly impacted and the damage is irreparable," Bandelier park officials said in a news release. "We have to divert staff to make repairs, document the damage and not to mention law enforcement has to engage and make an investigation," Bandelier National Monument Superintendent Jason Lott said. KRQE News 13 asked Bandelier park officials if they had surveillance video, but they said they would not reveal what evidence they have...." Superintendent Lott told KRQE News that he could not provide photos or any details of the vandalism because the park is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and an eventual conviction, and they are seeking legitimate tips.
The National Park Service advises, "If you have information about these incidents that could help investigators, please call the Bandelier Crime Tip Line at 505-709-0077. Though you may remain anonymous, up to $10,000 is offered for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of those responsible....
