Vandals targeted the Waroona Cricket Club recently, smashing a picket fence and leaving tyre marks over its pitch. Waroona police said the club’s oval was damaged by a vehicle or vehicles with the cricket pitch, oval and fencing being severely damaged. Senior Constable Dale Plant said it was a shame to see someone ruin the cricket ground for the locals. “At this time a report has been made to police regarding the damage, a number of broken items from the offending vehicle have been located by the cricket club,” he said. Members of the club believe the incident took place between 10am and 5.44pm on Sunday, October 24. Waroona Cricket Club president Mark Butler said the whole club was frustrated and heartbroken when things like this happened. “The Shire (does a lot of good work) on the ground and to see it destroyed just makes us angry,” he said. “We’re appealing for anyone who knows something to come forward and let us know so we can stop this sort of thing happening again,” he said. Waroona Police said they were looking to identify a vehicle and passenger in an image from CCTV footage. Police said the vehicle may have damage to the front bumper, number plate lighting, indicator lighting and headlights. Anyone with information should contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or email email@example.com. Waroona Shire president Mike Walmsley said he hoped the police would find those responsible. “It is really disappointing. It is out and out vandalism and destruction,” he said. “We’re hoping, because there is security cameras up there, they may be used to track down the culprits.” Mr Walmsley said the Shire would help the cricket club to recover.
