Vandals strike area schools
Glenwood Springs police on Monday were investigating two separate incidents of vandalism and theft at Glenwood Springs High School and Glenwood Springs Middle SchoolBy Greg MasséPost Independent StaffGlenwood Springs police on Monday were investigating two separate incidents of vandalism and theft at Glenwood Springs High School and Glenwood Springs Middle School. Glenwood Springs police Lt. Bill Kimminau said the city’s fire and police departments responded to a fire alarm inside the high school at 1 a.m. Sunday. “When they got there, they found an open door on the south end of the high school,” Kimminau said. Once inside, police found graffiti on some of the school’s walls and fire extinguishers removed from their cases and discharged in the school’s hallways. Investigators also found some damage to a computer lab at the high school. Kimminau said the vandals spread lotion, salsa and Wite Out correction fluid in the room. “Somebody just kind of threw it all over the room,” Kimminau said. In addition to the damage, estimated at more than $500, three video cameras were stolen, a theft of about $1,800. At the middle school, vandals broke in and smashed a glass cabinet that contained a stuffed cougar. The cougar was placed near the front door as if to try and scare somebody into thinking it was real. There was also some graffiti spray painted on the school’s walls.Kimminau said there have been no arrests and there are no suspects in the two incidents. Anyone with information can call Glenwood Springs police at 384-6500.Contact Greg Massé: 945-8515, ext. firstname.lastname@example.org
