ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – Police have released surveillance video of the three suspects wanted for vandalism at Englewood High School over the weekend.
Police say the suspects broke windows, trashed classrooms and started small fires. Damage is estimated to be in the thousands of dollars.
The suspects are believed to be in their 20s.
Jon Fore is Englewood’s principal. He said the suspects aren’t Englewood students and probably full grown men.
“When I looked at them I said to myself ‘wow they’ve done this before’ because they didn’t seem to be much in a hurry,” said Fore.
The men entered through a demolition project on the school campus.
Once inside they broke windows into a computer lab, damaging furniture, walls and electronic equipment.
“They managed to get into our stem lab with a lot of expensive equipment,” said Fore.
But the most destruction happened inside a music room. Multiple instruments including pianos and brass horns were destroyed.
The men then started fires inside. They ran when the fire alarm went off.
The clean up continues as the students return from winter break.
“Its our home during the week. Its very upsetting to the kids,” said Fore.
The high school hopes to have the damage to their facility repaired by Thursday.
Anyone who has any information is asked to call Englewood police.
