Vandals, thieves hit two schools

Myers said the vandals also took a laser printer, but abandoned it at a bike rack. At Meadows School, also in Valencia, a computer hard drive was taken after a window was removed from one of the portable classrooms sometime between 10 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Sunday. “What is disturbing is that this (is) part of a rash of episodes,” Principal Peggy O’Brien said. “In mid-September, another teacher’s classroom was broken into, and they took a computer, which somebody found later on McBean Parkway. And in late September, the computer lab itself was broken into – the same deal where they lifted the window from the frame.” In the late-September incident, O’Brien said, vandals cut wires on the school’s multimedia projector and took parts of the school’s wireless system. The lab recently reopened after repairs were completed at the end of October. VALENCIA – Vandals got into Valencia Valley and Meadows elementary schools over the weekend and took computer components, keys and a server for Valencia Valley’s bell and fire alarm systems. The thieves hit Valencia Valley between 4:30 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 a.m. Monday, leaving no sign of forced entry, said sheriff’s Sgt. Cortland Myers and Principal Tammi Rainville. A church uses schoolrooms on Sunday mornings, and Rainville speculated that the vandals entered during services and hid until worshippers left. “They went through the administration office, and once they got into the main portion of the school, then used crowbars to get into the classrooms,” Myers said. Rainville said at least six classrooms were vandalized, and a window in her office was broken. Along with two laptop computers, more than 200 keys for the school were taken, and a monitor was smashed in one of the classrooms. Contents of the cupboards and drawers also were scattered on the floors. “We’re thankful they didn’t do any vandalism other than taking the computers,” she said of the latest incident. “But our kids aren’t happy. They were here when the fingerprint people were here and saw the deputies taking the report. The nice thing is that when word gets out that we’ve experienced criminal activity, everybody wants to help.” Carol Rock, (661) 257-5252 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
