O'FALLON, MO (KTVI)-- The dirty work of vandals is going to cost the city of O'Fallon, Missouri thousands of dollars.

Deep muddy tire tracks on all four football fields in Dames Park in O'Fallon, Missouri. Someone drove a vehicle all around the fields either Monday night or Tuesday morning. The fields were very wet before the vandalism. Park crews had been watering because new grass had been planted. The damage is estimated at more than $5,000.

Police are hoping the public can provide them with information on who did it and a description of the vehicle.

All the football fields were undergoing maintenance and closed this month. Officials say they expect flag football games to return later this summer. Anyone with information on the vandalism is asked to contact the O'Fallon, Missouri Police Department.
