Vandals Trash Ocean City's Playland Castaway Cove Twice

A group of vandals trashed a popular amusement park in Ocean City, New Jersey twice this week, police said.

The vandals, who appear to be teenagers, were captured on surveillance video damaging property at Playland's Castaway Cove at 1020 Boardwalk on Monday and Wednesday, according to police.

A Playland official tells NBC10 the vandals toppled over two Coca-Cola vending machines — worth $4,000 a piece — breaking them. Half the trash cans in the park were overturned as well and garbage was strewn all over.

Ocean City police released surveillance photos of the teens with hopes of identifying them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 609-399-9111.
