VISTA (CNS) - Sheriff's officials and San Diego County Crime Stoppers Friday sought the public's help to find those responsible for vandalizing a Vista softball field and trashing an office and snack stand.
The Buena Vista Ball Fields at 1851 South Melrose Drive had been vandalized five times this year. Total damage cost to the fields was estimated at $10,000, according to sheriff's officials and Crime Stoppers.
One of the most recent occurrences was between 8 p.m. Aug. 13 and 8 the following morning. Sheriff's investigators said the suspects smashed a window to gain access to an upstairs office and snack stand then removed or destroyed multiple items.
The vandal or vandals also used spray paint stored in the office to deface the building's exterior and surrounding areas, including "BMX or Die," which was scrawled in white paint across a parking spot, sheriff's officials said.
That damage was estimated at $4,600.
Vandals struck again between 11:30 a.m. Aug. 14 and 7:30 a.m. the next morning and damaged cabinets, doors and other items in the building. Loss from that damage was estimated at $1,300, officials said.
Anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of the vandal or vandals was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or online at sdcrimestoppers.com. A reward of up to $1,000 was offered for information leading to an arrest.
