CHULA VISTA (KGTV) -- Chula Vista Police are searching for suspects who they say vandalized Discovery Park over the weekend.

According to the city, the vandals damaged the park by driving vehicles on the park grounds and soccer fields.

The city says the park has fallen victim to this type of vandalism twice within a few weeks. Marisol Park was also vandalized recently in the same way, according to the city.

The damage makes the fields unusable and forces events to be rescheduled, canceled or postponed. The city says they now have to spend thousands of dollars to replace the turf.

Anyone with information on the vandalism is asked to call the Chula Vista Police Department non-emergency number at 619-691-5151.
