LAS CRUCES — The Las Cruces Utilities payment drop box was in crime scene tape after vandals desecrated the unit with feces, investigators said. The dropbox, located between City Hall and Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, was damaged over the Thanksgiving Holiday, and all payments inside the drop box have been voided.
Customers who deposited payments at the drop box between Wednesday, November 21 and Monday, November 26 at 9:30 a.m. are asked to make replacement payment.
Payments may be made in person at City Hall, 700 N. Main St., phoned in by calling 541-2111, mailed, or paid online at www.las-cruces.org 
The payment drop box is out of service until further notice.
