Utah State Parks officials are asking for help to find out who is responsible for theft and vandalism at an archaeological site near Wendover.

Heritage Resource Manager Justina Parsons-Bernstein says someone broke into the Danger Cave State Park Heritage Site and stole artifacts, lighting and safety equipment.

Parks officials believe the thefts occurred between 4 p.m. on May 7th and 9 a.m. on May 11th.

The cave is considered one of the most important archaeological sites in North America by the University of Utah.

Parsons-Bernstein says investigators are hopeful that someone might give them a tip that will help catch whoever broke into the cave.
