11-14-2020 - 9:29 PM – A resident walking through Wilde Memorial Park reported observing a picnic table turned over and garbage cans knocked over. While checking the area officers found that damages had been done inside the rest rooms at the bathhouse. 

It appeared that the damage was very recent as the fields were in use most of the day and one of the bathroom dividers had been ripped off the wall and was laying outside, which would have been noticed.
