Eudora Police are investigating a case of vandalism at Eudora District Stadium late Thursday night or early Friday morning.
According to Sgt. Tom Willis of the Eudora Police Department, vandals spray painted several profanities and graphic symbols on the field turf, the concession stand and the water tower. Eudora Police are estimating the damage at just over $25,000.
According to school district officials, the district will be working with ATG, the construction company that built the stadium last year, to assess all the damage and determine the best plan for repair.
While the assessment goes on and repairs are made, the stadium will be locked and not accessible to the public.
“This stadium is a brand new facility that our district’s taxpayers put forward for the community, with the idea that it would be open for everyone to use and enjoy,” Superintendent Don Grosdidier said. “So it is deeply frustrating that the acts of a few have taken this facility away from us all.”
The Eudora Police Department is asking anyone that may have information about the vandalism to contact the Eudora Police Department at 785-542-3121.
