Vandalism at Grayson Sports Park. Possible Break-In Attempt at Tourism Cabin

Grayson police have been asked to look into vandalism at the site of the city's new sports park, as well as a possible attempted break in at the nearby cabin which serves as the office for the city's tourism bureau.

Tourism commission chairman Mindy Woods-Click said she and others serving on the sports park's materials committee met Wednesday to discuss lighting, fences, plumbing, turf and other considerations when one of the construction workers reported a piece of equipment, possibly a roller, required attention.

They then learned a D-8 dozer had also malfunctioned, and that it appeared someone had put sugar in the fuel tank of both pieces of heavy equipment, she said.

"So, they're having to be rebuilt," Woods-Click said, adding a preliminary repair bill for one of the two was placed at around $20,000.

The city's police department was again called in Monday morning, she said, after Tourism Coordinator Maggie Duncan was unable to gain entry to the rear door of the tourism cabin. There was no further indication of attempted forced entry, with damage limited to the lock mechanism, Woods-Click said, noting the cabin's locks were changed immediately.
