Police: Burglars strike school

Follow Daily Journal:

Police are investigating a weekend break-in at a Franklin elementary school.

One or more vandals broke into Webb Elementary School, and the damage was discovered Sunday afternoon. A parent who was at the school with a 4-H club asked a teacher to call police after finding a broken window on the north side of the school, according to a Franklin Police Department report and Franklin director of operations Bill Doty.

Whoever broke into the school was cut by broken glass; blood was found on the window sill, an inside wall and on the floor, the report said. The vandal also wrote graffiti on a wall in the school, climbed a natural gas pipe to get onto the roof and broke a second window on the roof, Doty said.

Nothing was taken from the school, at 1400 Webb Drive, Doty said.

Maintenance crews at the school have cleaned up the graffiti and are covering the pipe so that it can’t be used to climb to the roof, Doty said.

Anyone with any information about the burglary is asked to call Detective Sgt. John Borges at 346-1142.
