SOUTH TOMS RIVER – You’ve probably heard the old saying “this is why we can’t have nice things.” The South Toms River Police Department is searching for two people who thought it would be a good idea to ride ATV’s on a borough baseball field this past weekend, destroying it.

Police took to social media stating they believe the two suspects responsible live locally and are very disturbed by their actions.

The Facebook post reads “These two fine individuals DESTROYED your child’s baseball field over this past weekend. They thought it would be fun to use the infield as their own personal mud pit. Now they have to answer for it.”


The post goes on to say “someone out there knows who these people are. They live locally, that we know.  We are certain that the residents of our town find this as disturbing as we do, and also will not stand for it.”

The number to reach the police department is 732-349-0313 extension 116.
