Police: No Suspects Yet In School Vandalism
Casper police still have no suspects in the vandalism at St. Anthony Tri-Parish School last month, Sgt. Mike Ogden said Wednesday.
About 9:30 p.m. June 25th, unknown individuals trespassed on to the grounds of the school at 1145 W. 20th St., according to a press release from school spokesman Nick Dresang last week.
They acquired a ladder that was stored on the property and used it to gain access to the roof of the school. From there the suspects were able to gain entry to the school from a maintenance hatch about 10:30 p.m.
The suspects proceeded to vandalize the school until roughly 1:30 a.m. Friday, when they set off the school's fire alarm. The suspects fled the scene through the rear entrance of the school’s gymnasium and through Nancy English Park.
The school's video surveillance system recorded the vandalism.
Casper Fire-EMS was on the scene shortly after the alarm was sounded, and notified Casper Police of a suspected break-in.
School staff arrived soon after that.
Damages are estimated in the tens of thousands of thousands of dollars.
The school asks that anyone with information regarding this incident contact the Casper Police Department at 307-235-8278, or Casper Crime Stoppers at 307-577-8477.
