    Cypress Canyon Park is normally filled with fun and family but in the middle of the night Friday, vandals disrupted that by stealing stainless steel irrigation heads.

    "It's terrible it's disappointing it's horrible that the people would steal from our parks and our kids," said softball coach Jeff Tarczy.

    Vandals left behind 47 holes and word of the damage is spreading among members of the city's Civic Association.

    Families are trying to figure out just how to catch the vandals and make sure this doesn't happen again.

    They're already talking about possible security measures on Facebook and a newsletter is going out to all members of the Scripps Ranch Civic Association.

    "Once people realize they're paying assessments for theft people are going to be upset," said association president Bob Ilko.

    The thieves will likely make $300 off the steel but parts and labor to fix it will likely cost the City's Maintenance Assessment District up to $4,000.
