Vandalism Hits Martin County Airport

Vandalism is causing a costly mess at the Martin County Regional Airport.

Officials say someone got onto the runway Wednesday night and drove a four-wheeler over the runway lights. 36 of the 50 lights were damaged, to the tune of nearly 8,000 dollars. One person has been arrested. Officials say they now have to re-evaluate security at the airport, and possibly put up a fence.

Until the lights are fixed, the runway closes at sunset.
