The Stearns County Sheriff's Office made an announcement earlier this week that they plan to have more of a presence at a number of Stearns County parks after an increase in the number of incidents, mainly at Quarry Park.

They're asking for the public's help tracking down whoever caused the damage. If you have any information on this incident you're asked to call the Stearns County Sheriff's Office at 320-259-3702.

The post has been shared and reacted to dozens of times by people on Facebook.
