WHITESTOWN, N.Y. -- The Whitestown Police Department is investigating a case of vandalism at the Kurt Wyman Memorial Park in Whitestown.

Board members with the park tell NEWSChannel 2 that they found out the vandalism occurred back on October 3rd.

Board member David Olney said that he was heartbroken when he heard what had been done. He showed our reporter the scale of the damage late Wednesday afternoon.

"it's just terrible and this is just a small percentage of the damage that has been done that looks like this one person," said Olney.

The tracks cover both soccer fields along with a separate field of the park. 

Kurt Wyman was a Sheriff Deputy that was killed in the line fo duty while responding to a domestic dispute.

"He had a love for children, soccer, and sports and we felt this was something we could do to honor his legacy," said Olney.

Now park officials say they have a list of things to do to fix the fields. Olney said that some of the ruts are deep enough to potentially injure a soccer player.

"We're going to have to spend some time and money to get this fixed. Eventually, with the deeper stuff, they will have to put down some topsoil. We cant have fresh topsoil and seeds here when kids are playing," said Olney.

Police are asking that if you have any information on who did this to call the Whitestown Police department at 315-736-1100.
