Police are looking for vandals who have been terrorizing and trashing an East Islip Little League field for months.
Authorities are searching for two suspects caught damaging the field on camera. Police believe others may be involved.
The Little League of the Islips field has been repeatedly hit with outbursts of vandalism for the past eight months. The concession stands have been hit as well as glass broken, sprinklers destroyed, locks cut, paint thrown around and pesticides poured into the gas tank of a tractor used to maintain the green.
The vandals last struck on July 17, cutting down fencing around the backstop and dugouts. That damage has been estimated to cost thousands.
"I'm here 33 years and I haven't seen this much vandalism in the last eight months that I've seen in the past 33 years," says George Trimigliozzi, who takes care of the fields.
Trimigliozzi says last month the vandals tore out security cameras and tossed them in the woods, but had their faces photographed in the process.
Little League officials say they won't fix what's been vandalized most recently until the responsible parties have been caught.
