UPDATE: Vandals Tarnish a Schoolyear’s EndJune 22nd, 2007 by josh farley
Early June 14, vandals hit North Mason High School, marking the second time in about a month the district has been attacked by graffiti and hooliganism.
In mid-May, vandals struck their bus barn, damaging 28 of the district’s total 33 school buses by breaking gauges and tagging buses, ultimately doing about $10,000 in damage.
In mid-June they chose the high school — spraying more graffiti, discharging fire extinguishers and pushing chairs down the stairs — at a time when the school’s seniors have graduated and there’s only days left in school.
UPDATE: Now, Mason County Sheriff’s deputies believe they’ve solved the case …
Four people have been arrested — three adults and one juvenile — in the bus incident. And three more arrests have occurred in the last day or so in the high school incident, deputies said. At least one teen is believed to have been involved in both.
We’ve already examined the correlation between nice weather and not-so nice people on this blog.
How do you think vandals affect overall communities?
