VANDALISM AT SALEM FRANKLIN PARK SCHOOL

Early Tuesday morning, several persons entered the Salem Franklin Park School and vandalized the building.  We spoke with Salem Chief of Police Ron Campo who said they received notice of the break-in Tuesday, at 5:24 a.m.  There was no sign of forced entry and the vandals are believed to have entered through an open window.  Chief Campo said damage is extensive.  Smart boards and computers in classrooms and a computer lab were totally destroyed.  The principal’s office computers and phone were destroyed and the entire office trashed.  Door knobs on locked doors were broken off and windows in the science lab were broken using the thigh bone of a human skeleton.  Damage is estimated in excess of $100,000.00.  Campo said very little was actually stolen. It appears the vandals were interested only in destruction of property.  The Franklin Park School was not in session Tuesday or Wednesday but is expected to be in session Thursday.  Classes at the Hawthorne Elementary School were also cancelled because lunches are prepared at the Franklin Park building.  Salem Police and Illinois State Police Crime Scene Investigators continue the investigation.
