Crop Damage Vandals Near Winfield, Iowa.

Updated: July 5, 2012 04:38 PM CDT

The Henry County Sheriff's Office is investigating crop circles discovered in a cornfield near Winfield, Iowa. Officials don't suspect aliens, but they do suspect vandals were behind the stunt. Authorities say it appears someone drove a 4X4 vehicle through a cornfield on Nashua Ave. between 150th St. and 106th St. during the night of June 30. They found a number of circles over a large section of the field.

It may seem like a childish prank, but with corn going for over $6 a bushel, the losses can quickly add up. Authorities are asking for help from the public in finding the vandals. They say the vehicle will most likely have corn stalks attached to it and it may not have a front license plate.
