Scripps Ranch Jerabek field vandal

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The Scripps Ranch Civic Association offered a reward Monday to find the person who vandalized ball fields.

The incident was reported over the weekend at Jerabek Park at 10150 Agenda Magnifica. Someone in what neighbors believe was a large truck drove in circles on the field, raising the turf.

“This type of destruction of our field, we’ve seen it a couple of times before; it’s really got to stop,” said Steve Trifoglio, who plays ball at the field.

The SRCA posted a $1,000 reward on its Facebook page. A neighbor chipped in another $100.

An update Monday indicated a landscape contractor was able to tamp down some of the raised turf. However, 21 sprinkler heads were broken, raising safety concerns for anyone running or walking on the field.

The SRCA filed a police report, saying damage was estimated at $10,000.

“This is Scripps Ranch and we shouldn’t be having things like this here,” said Trifoglio.

Anyone with information was asked to call San Diego Police or the SRCA at president@scrippsranch.org .
