School bro­ken into ... again

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

PORT Dou­glas State School has been bro­ken into three times this past month with sev­eral rooms trashed and van­dalised.

Dur­ing all three in­ci­dents, class­rooms were van­dalised, pa­per and sta­tion­ary strewn across the rooms, glue pots emp­tied and small amounts of cash stolen.

Port Dou­glas Se­nior Con­sta­ble Alan Dempsey said po­lice sus­pect the of­fend­ers are ju­ve­niles and is ap­peal­ing for any wit­nesses to come for­ward.

“This mind­less dam­age caused within the class­rooms im­pacts the stu­dents, some­one out there must have heard some­thing or know who is re­spon­si­ble,” he said.

“Po­lice will be car­ry­ing out high pro­file pa­trols of the school.”

Po­lice are call­ing on any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the in­ci­dents that have oc­curred be­tween Septem­ber 2-5, some­time in the first week of school hol­i­days Septem­ber 16-23 and again be­tween Septem­ber 23-27.

If you have any in­for­ma­tion con­tact the Port Dou­glas po­lice on 4087 1999 or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
