BLACKWOOD, N.J. (CBS) — Eight children have been arrested in connection to a brazen act of vandalism caught on camera, police in Gloucester Township said. Video shows a group of young people lighting a can on fire at the Valleybrook Sports Turf Field in Blackwood.

Authorities said tips from the public led to their arrests.

The can melted and left its mark on the ground with a huge hole on the third-base line.

The field is used by special needs children.
