Click to hear KMZU’s Ashley Johnson speak with Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox:
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the individual or individuals responsible for recent property damage. Sheriff Steve Cox says one of the incidents occurred in the Ludlow area. “The Ludlow Lions’ ball field and property was damaged,” said Cox, “Someone drove onto the grass and then onto the ball field itself, spinning their tires and cutting ruts. At the same time, or roughly the same time, someone shot out a few of the lights. That’s an expensive thing. This is a private park that they take very good care of and it’s used by a lot of youth and even adults in that part of the county.”
Other damage was reported in the 10000 block of Old Highway 190. “A person’s very nice yard was driven into with the same kind of problems,” said Cox, “It was, at least, the same size of vehicle that did the one down by Ludlow. There have also been a few small incidents around Dawn and the southwestern part of the county. A nativity scene and soda machine were vandalized. Last week, Southwest School received minor damage from someone that shot at it from probably the highway.”
An effort has been started to raise funds for repairs to the Ludlow facility. You can learn more by visiting the GoFundMe website.
