Officials in a central Kansas county are calculating the damage done by vandals to several pieces of heavy equipment.

Employees with the Barton County Road and Bridge Department discovered the damage Thursday morning at a job site south of Ellinwood.

Department foreman Mike Patton says windows were smashed out of two road graders, a power broom and a backhoe that were parked just off a road. He estimates the damage at $10,000 to $15,000.

Crews had just started working Wednesday on a project that was scheduled to take about two weeks. Patton says window glass for the damaged vehicles has to be specially cut, and the project could be delayed by two weeks.
