LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The owners of Joyland Amusement Park are hoping someone will recognize the people caught on camera vandalizing the park on October 28, 2021.

The police report shows from around 1 a.m. until 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, three suspects jumped a fence at the park and walked around, damaging and stealing property. The officer who responded saw wooden boards pulled off of the water slide, a funhouse mirror was shattered. There were train wires pulled out and steering wheels of electric cars pulled off. There was a glass mirror ball missing from one of the carnival rides.

The three suspects walked through the food line and walked to a door, but were not able to get inside.

When the owner arrived later that morning, he saw the damage and called the police.

The damage totals are estimated at more than $10,000.

Joyland officials posted surveillance photos of two of the suspects. If you know either of these two people, you’re urged to call the Lubbock Police Department Crimes Against Properties at 806-775-2769.

The park was also vandalized in May. Later that month, the park flooded, causing damage.
