Vandals target Nanaimo elementary school
Uplands Park Elementary School in north Nanaimo suffered more than $5,000 damage when vandals struck on the weekend.
The incident happened sometime Friday night or early Saturday when culprits broke windows and smeared dog feces on doors, windows and walls.
“There was two small door windows smashed and garbage strewn through the rear of the school,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman.
The incident was reported to police by a passerby walking his dog Saturday morning.
Damage to the school is estimated at about $5,000.
Uplands Elementary School was also targeted by vandals Feb. 10 and 11 when two small fires were set behind the school.
