Sandy police are hoping you can help them find five men accused of tearing up a golf course to the tune of $10,000.

River Oaks golf course is ripped up and Sandy police are hoping surveillance video will help them find the men who did it.

Sgt. Victor Quezada says the men paid more than $300 in cash to golf and buy beer, then they hit the links.

"They tore up the greens. They tore up the golf course itself with the golf carts. Then they started removing the flags from the holes and digging up parts of the grass here and there. They actually put one of the golf carts in the water," he said.

Quezada says the men could face felony charges.
