Service Department workers reported to Brecksville police Dec. 28 that a pair of speakers on Public Square had been damaged.
A report said the employees noticed about 10:30 a.m. that holiday music was no longer playing in the square.
Police found both speakers had been tilted off their brackets, and wires were pulled out.
Whoever did it left behind a note taped to a speaker: "The music is far too loud for the neighboring businesses and churches."
The culprit got only a few hours of quiet, though. The service department soon had the speakers repaired.
