Intruders were able to do $10,000 worth of damage during a break-in at a Norfolk County elementary school, police say.
The break-in occurred between 1:08 a.m. and 1:53 a.m. Aug. 31 at St. Bernard of Clairvaux School in Waterford.
According to Norfolk County OPP, that span of 45 minutes was enough time for people to break glass doors, get into the school, damage various items including desks, bookshelves, trophies and electronics, and attempt to pull a sink off of a bathroom wall.
While the sink stayed attached to the wall, the intruders’ actions did cause part of the school to flood.
Vandalism was also reported in the principal’s office, staff room and school kitchen.
Anyone with information about the break-in is asked to contact Norfolk County OPP or Crime Stoppers.
