Vandals target Proserpine school in string of break-ins

A Proserpine high school has become a target for vandals with a spate of break-ins occurring over the school holidays.

Proserpine Police acting officer-in-charge Alan Davis said officers were investigating three different instances of damage and break-ins at Proserpine State High School.

"Juveniles have been forcing entry to staffrooms causing damage and graffitiing walls," he said.

Senior Sergeant Davis said the incidents occurred between January 4 and 10, with the offenders believed to be targeting the school at night.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is urged to phone Proserpine Police on 4945 9666 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
