Officers were first alerted to the vandalism Sunday morning, April 5, after it was discovered that during the overnight hours someone had driven a vehicle onto the soccer fields.

After driving onto the fields, the unidentified driver “spun donuts in the muddy grass creating significant ruts through the field and breaking the sprinkler system in multiple locations,” according to APD oficials; who said the department “is seeking the community’s assistance with any information regarding the suspect or vehicle.”

Anyone with information about this vandalism investigation is encouraged to contact Anderson PD at (530) 378-6600. Tips can also be reported via email.
