Cherrybrook school vandalism bill tops $6000

Vandals thought to be pulling a ‘‘muck up day’’ prank have caused $6000 worth of damage to Cherrybrook Technology High School.

The three attacks last Monday left significant water damage to a classroom, spray paint damage to a number of walls and two broken front gate locks.

Eastwood Police said the vandals entered the school between 7pm and 7am.

During the attack a fire hose was used to soak a number of surfaces in one classroom.

Eastwood Inspector Stephen Fowler said the investigation could take months to complete.

‘‘Contrary to earlier reports we haven’t interviewed anyone regarding this matter yet,’’ Inspector Fowler said.

‘‘There was little evidence left at the scene but we dusted for fingerprints and are awaiting the results.’’

Inspector Fowler said over time information would come out about the incident.

‘‘The school had no CCTV so earlier media reports are speculating it was linked to muck up day school pranks,’’ he said.

‘‘If students are involved then they will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act.’’
