Kartchner Caverns vandalized

Posted: Updated:

One of Southern Arizona's natural treasures is dealing with a devastating break-in. Trespassers vandalized portions of Kartchner Caverns State Park Sunday night.

Park officials found muddy footprints and damaged stalactites in a cave. The intruders also left the doors open -- which is harmful -- because the desert heat can damage the fragile environment of the cavern.
