Ballina police are investigating the malicious damage of Epiq Sporting Fields at Lennox Head around 8am on Thursday (December 27).

The incident was witnessed by a high ranking off-duty local police officer, who took these photos.

Although he did not manage to get the full registration number, the last three digits are believed to be 49K.

The blue hatchback (pictured) may have been badly damaged at the back and the owners could be seeking repairs.

The occupants of the car are described as male and 17 to 20 years old.

Anyone who knows who may have been involved is requested to call Ballina Police on 66818699 ASAP.

‘We would very much like to speak to the driver and ask him a question or two,’ police said.
