Vandals strike county schools

  • Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Westview Middle and Elementary school employees made shattering discoveries two weeks ago.
At about 6:45 p.m. on July 27 a Westview Middle School employee was contacted by the school’s alarm company and told that an alarm was activated in room 220 as well as the school’s book room, according to a Goose Creek Police Department incident report.
The employee traveled to the areas were the alarms sounded and discovered two damaged windows that had been struck by a single object, possibly a stick or rock.
The impacts created a spider web fragment effect.
There was no sign of the objects that caused the damage. There was no suspect information.
On July 27 the Westview Elementary School principal made a similar discovery when she noticed rocks had broken a school window.
This time there were several rocks outside the shattered window. One of the two panes of glass was broken out and a rock was wedged between the shattered glass and the second pane, according to the report.
The officer reviewed video surveillance to see two white juvenile males approaching the school just after 8 p.m. on July 27. The damage at each school is estimated to be $500.
