A vandal caused more than $10,000 in damage to the football field and track at Omaha Burke High School. 

According to a police report, a male was seen on video attempting to enter the school and portable classrooms around 2:40 a.m. Thursday. He was unable to get into the school and instead made his way to the football field. 

On the northwest corner of the field, the person set a $600 football tackling dummy on fire. The fire spread from the dummy to the turf and surrounding track, causing about $10,700 in damage.

Security cameras at the school caught the incident on video, but the vandal has not yet been identified.
