|I came to work on Monday to find my school totally trashed with art style paint all over the school. Tagged, splattered, dumped all over. One of the more unfortunately aspects of my job. Believe it or not, this kind of stuff does not happen very often at my school, but when it does it sure feels good to find the individuals responsible. Fortunately for us, these guys did it all in front of one of the many cameras on campus. Not too bright. Check out the article below. It is amazing how much damage can be done in such a little amount of time. Even more amazing is how much time and effort it takes to clean it all up...|
3 boys held in vandalism Three boys, 12, 13 and 15 years old, were booked into Fresno County Juvenile Detention Facility on suspicion of burglary and felony vandalism Monday after a break-in at Sequoia Middle School, Fresno police reported.
Damages at the school at 4050 E. Hamilton were estimated at more than $5,000, Sgt. Mark Hudson said. The damages took place Sunday night after vandals broke into the art room and used paint to cause graffiti damage throughout the school.
A school vice principal reviewed school video surveillance tapes and discovered that one of the juveniles attended summer school and was in class. After calling the student into the office, the vice principal discovered the identity of the other two juveniles and notified police.
