We have an update on a vandalized public art project we told you about two weeks ago.

A "yarn bomb" has been re-installed in The Heights.

Organizer Mary Goldsby says people all over the city and even across the country offered to knit new squares to replace the ones that were damaged.

Some people also sent pictures of themselves at the yarn bomb on Heights Boulevard, and those photos have been included in the new installation.

The vandal still hasn't been caught. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $500 for any information called in to the 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the filing of felony charges or arrest of the suspect(s) in this case. Tips can also be sent by text message. Text TIP610 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637). All tipsters remain anonymous.
