Brooksville Police investigating theft, vandalism at Tom Varn Park

BROOKSVILLE — Police are looking for the suspect or suspects who broke into city-owned buildings at Tom Varn Park early Wednesday and stole a utility vehicle.

A city employee arrived at the small office building at 306 Darby Lane just before 7 a.m. to find the electric meter pulled off the outside of the building, apparently to disable an alarm system and gain access to an adjacent fenced enclosure, where the John Deere Gator was stored, said Police Chief George Turner. There were no signs of forced entry into the building, Turner said. Someone also broke into the press box and concession stand at the nearby ball fields and stole about $10 worth of candy.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Brooksville Police Department, (352) 540-3800.
