MONROE - Heavy earth-moving equipment was found vandalized in the Town of Brooklyn Monday morning after vandals apparently broke into them over the weekend.

Multiple earth-movers were found Monday morning having been moved throughout the Klahn Gravel Pit on County MM, Town of Brooklyn. The cabs of some of the machinery had been filled with gravel and others had been left partially buried in gravel drifts.

"It's kind of like kids playing in a sandbox," Green County Sheriff Mark Rohloff said.

Rohloff said the equipment had not sustained significant damage. However, the vandals were still guilty of trespassing and using vehicles without the owners' permission.

Rohloff said it is still unclear how the vandals were able to obtain the ignition keys for the equipment.

The investigation into the case is ongoing. Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact Green County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-7463.
