Police investigate vandalism, theft

Paul Shockley

Police have no suspects in two weekend incidents- one a vandalism act at a local school, the other involving more than $500 cash stolen near the front desk of a hotel.

Craig police continue to investigate a vandalism case, believed to have occurred over the weekend, in which several sewer vent pipes were broken off from the roof of East Elementary School.

A custodian with the school reported the vandalism Monday. Authorities Tuesday afternoon did not have a damage estimate.

“We’re not sure how the individual(s) made it on the roof at this point,” said Bill Leonard, Craig police administrative sergeant.

Leonard said the incident is believed to have occurred between Friday night and Sunday night.

Police also are investigating the theft of more than $500 cash, which was apparently lying out in the area of the front desk at the Holiday Inn.

The theft is thought to have happened on Thursday or Friday. The hotel’s general manager reported the theft to police on Friday.

“We have had similar cases, but none currently linked to this one,” Leonard said.
