RICHTON, MS (WDAM) - Vandals caused major damage to the Recreation Park in downtown Richton over the weekend.

More than 20 trees were either destroyed or heavily damaged. A recently installed volleyball net was also targeted.

It's not clear how the damage was done, but it appears some kind of off road vehicle was used in the destruction.

Richton Police declined to release any details until Monday, but did say at least one person is in custody.
