PORTSMOUTH, VA. - Vandals are caught on camera, twice over the weekend, trying to break into a Portsmouth little league's concession stand and connex box.

Staff with the Churchland Softball Little League posted to their Facebook saying vandals broke in Friday night.

“We were furious," Former league president, Dennis Wieckert said. "We work really, really hard."

While the vandals didn’t take anything valuable, they caused about $5,000 in damages.

“Their purpose seems to be more for destructive than anything else," Wieckert said.

After cleaning up the place on Saturday morning, staff say the group then tried to break in again on Saturday night.

“Other than being completely furious, I thought it was incredibly bold and emblazing of them to return to the scene," Wieckert told News 3.

Right now, the team is working with a detective to find those involved.

They’ve released pictures of the group and are asking for the public’s help in identifying them.
