Cousins charged with vandalizing little league offices

Two 18-year-old cousins are charged with vandalizing and burglarizing the offices inside the Madison Little League.

Volunteers of the ballpark located on Forest Park Road discovered the break-in upon arriving to the clubhouse the morning of February 22.

The vandals smashed the trophy case, broke trophies, spilled paint, wrote graffiti, destroyed doors and even threw a computer monitor out of the second story window.

One of the vandals also smashed a security camera, but not before he was captured on video.

He was identified as Abimael Novo and arrested that day on charges of burglary and felony vandalism.  He has since been released on $10,000 bond.

His cousin, Yoerlandy Novo, surrendered to authorities Sunday.  He also faces charges of burglary and felony vandalism, and remains in the Metro jail in lieu of $30,000 bond.

Donald Harp, a Madison Little League board member and life-long baseball fan, said he had never seen either man before.

He added nothing was actually stolen; they broke into the office mostly just to break things.

"They were knocking out the trophy cases. This whole case was full front to rear top to bottom," Harp said. "They broke in to break stuff."

He continued, "I've been doing the coaching for 17 years, and it hurts, it hurts, and not just me it hurts the kids."

The Madison Little League runs on donations.

Anyone who wishes to help out can give him a call at 615-686-3332.
