DIGHTON — Chief Robert MacDonald reports that the Dighton Police Department is investigating an incident of vandalism that occurred at the Dighton-Rehoboth High School.
On Sunday morning, Jan. 31, Dighton Police received a report of damage done to the Dighton-Rehoboth High School softball field and junior varsity baseball field, which also serves as the high school’s football practice field.
It appeared that a vehicle had driven “donuts” on the field causing deep ruts in the grass sometime on Saturday, Jan. 30.
“This year has been filled with many difficulties for students already, and now this act of vandalism will cause a delay in the district’s highly anticipated athletics season,” Chief MacDonald said. “We encourage anyone with information pertaining to this incident to contact us as soon as possible.”
The investigation is active and ongoing. Anyone who believes they may have information about this incident is asked to call the Dighton Police Department’s anonymous tip line at 508-669-4500 or speak with School Resource Officer Michael Marshall.
