FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Two more little league fields have been hit with vandalism.

Last weekend someone broke into electrical equipment at the Wallen Complex on Village Drive. The thief cut wires out of power boxes, off light poles used to light the fields, and stole a computer chip out of the equipment that controls the irrigation system.

The groundskeeper says in his 17 years there he’s never seen damage like this.

The same thing happened to the Saint Joe ballparks. Vandals sliced wires to the stadium lights and power boxes. It will cost thousands of dollars at each complex to repair the damage.
