Vandals cause $100,000 in damages to Cairo school
CAIRO, Mo. -- Vandals who destroyed computers, televisions and VCRs at Northeast R-IV School in north-central Missouri caused an estimated $100,000 in damage, Superintendent Marge Gibson said.
The vandalism occurred sometime over the weekend and was discovered Sunday evening. Det. Cpl. John Johnson of the Randolph County Sheriff's Department said two juveniles had been arrested by Thursday and turned over to juvenile authorities.
Johnson said the vandals discharged fire extinguishers in every hallway, broke windows, left graffiti and damaged the school's business computer lab and library. He said the vandals took three laptop computers and three VCRs.
"They trashed the school and they attempted to break into the safe, the big walk-in vault," Johnson said.
Authorities were continuing to investigate.
