SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police have released three surveillance videos of three men sought for questioning in connection with vandalism at Battlefield Memorial Park.

Police said that the driver of a Ford Mustang drove around in circles on the parade ground and monument section at Battlefield Park at about midnight Sunday morning.

A video released earlier shows the car crossing MLK Boulevard heading west onto Louisville Road. The video then shows the car in the distance spinning circles in the park. Stones on the monument were damaged and the lawn was left with deep ruts in it.

The latest video shows some men getting out of a blue Ford Mustang and walking into a convenience store immediately after the incident. Police said another video shows the people in the car going into the store, waiting to use a restroom and leaving the restroom. A few seconds later, the blue Mustang is seen exiting the parking lot.

The video shows driver wearing a black button-up shirt, jeans and a short military style haircut. The frontseat passenger was wearing a black shirt, black pants and an Atlanta Falcons baseball cap. The backseat passenger was wearing a blue plaid shirt, tan pants and a blue baseball cap turned backwards.

The Mustang is believed to be about a 2010 model with chrome exhausts.
