The vandals drove several construction vehicles around the landfill, leaving one piece of heavy machinery stuck in a ditch, but also drove off with one piece, a 45 ton excavator which was driven though a chain link fence at the Town of Tonawanda landfill and headed north onto Hackett Drive in the City of Tonawanda, which adjoins the landfill, according to police.

Police were called to WSF Industries on Hackett Drive on Friday morning where they learned that someone had started digging a hole and then abandoned the excavator. An unknown amount of damage was reported, which included ruts made by the equipment, damage to the fence and damage done by the excavator.

Police still looking for a suspect or suspects Sunday night.
