A one-thousand dollar reward is being offered for information leading to the capture of those responsible for damaging City Park equipment.

A group of vandals hot-wired five four wheelers and used them in miniature demolition derby.

Park staff found the vehicles in water at the lagoon in City Park on Sunday morning.  Damage to the vehicles is estimated to be 50-thousand dollars.

“Even though were down some money right now… We would absolutely love to write someone a check for one thousand dollars provided somebody ended up being arrested,” John Hopper Chief Development Officer, said.
