School break-in probe con­tin­ues

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Po­lice are still ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion fol­low­ing a break-in at a pri­mary school.

Yobs smashed a win­dow at Bar­gar­ran Pri­mary School, in Ersk­ine, be­fore clog­ging up a sink and leav­ing a tap run­ning.

The sense­less in­ci­dent un­folded at around 7.30pm last Wed­nes­day and cops have asked for wit­nesses to come for­ward.

It is un­der­stood the sus­pects lobbed a large rock through a win­dow to get in­side be­fore try­ing to cause wa­ter dam­age to a class­room then fled the scene.

Po­lice say the cost of the dam­age caused is still to be es­tab­lished.

Sergeant Alan Mack, who is based in John­stone, has warned that the force will not tol­er­ate van­dal­ism.

He said:“We were called to re­ports that Bar­gar­ran Pri­mary School in Ersk­ine had been bro­ken into around 7.30pm.

“A win­dow had been crudely smashed with a large rock and the sus­pects gained ac­cess. While in­side they clogged up a class­room sink and turned on the taps.

“There was some wa­ter dam­age caused.

“I would ask any­one who may have seen any­thing sus­pi­cious near the school at around the time of the in­ci­dent to please get in touch.
