‘Unbelievable’: Vandals target sports club in cruel act
A Moranbah sports club has been targeted by vandals, who caused extensive and costly damage to the facility.
The vandals allegedly drove a vehicle onto the Moranbah AFL sports fields, leaving numerous tyre tracks, dug up pitches, and ripped a sign from the wall of the clubhouse.
Police believe the damage was caused between 5pm on December 30 and 4pm on December 31.
Senior Sergeant Adam Dyer said the crime had impacted the local football club and Moranbah community in a number of ways.
He said a great deal of time and money would be required to repair the damage.
"It is unbelievable that anyone would do this to a community facility that is used and enjoyed by so many people," Snr Sgt Dyer said.
"Such behaviour is reckless and completely thoughtless and those responsible have committed criminal offences by doing so."
Moranbah Police are investigating the wilful damage caused to the grounds and the club building.
Any witnesses or persons with knowledge of this incident are encouraged to contact police.
