KINGSPORT — Kingsport police are seeking the public’s help in identifying vandals who recently caused damage to facilities at the Dobyns-Bennett High School Soccer Complex.
According to the Kingsport Police Department, the vandalism occurred sometime between Nov. 22 and Nov. 24 at the complex located at Indian Highland Park, 1814 E. Center St.
The vandals reportedly tore down several windscreens and signs situated around the fields and at some point attempted to enter the soccer field house located at the park.
Police said the windscreens and signs carried a value of approximately $1,800.
The field house door reportedly received an additional $200 in damage during the failed burglary attempt, a KPD spokesman said.
“The D-B Soccer Boosters had recently invested a considerable amount of time and money to improve this complex, making it all the more unfortunate that this crime occurred,” KPD Public Information Officer Tom Patton said.
The damaged windscreens were custom ordered and imprinted with a “Tribe Soccer” logo, while the signs highlighted the soccer program’s previous winning seasons.
Patton said anyone with information that may help investigators develop suspects in the case can contact the KPD Criminal Investigations Division at (423) 229-9429 or Kingsport Central Dispatch at (423) 246-9111.
