Tuesday break-in and vandalism of Sir Novelle Richards Academy forces early dismissal of students on Wednesday

Just one day after the Greenbay Primary was discovered robbed, the Sir Novelle Richards Academy was vandalized, forcing the school’s administration to dismiss students for the day.

Pupils were sent home early on Wednesday, September 14, after they showed up and found sections of the education facility defaced by spray paint.

REAL News learned that a female security officer made a report to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) that the glass door to the staff room had been broken and paint had been splashed about the school.

Reportedly, when the woman showed up for her shift at about 11:04 p.m. the night before, she observed that the door was broken and the room ransacked.

The intruders reportedly had used a hard object to break the glass and enter the room, where they damaged two computer monitors.

The perpetrators also used what appeared to be black spray paint on the lower sections of the eastern, northern and southern wings of the school.

Police officers carried out a search for any suspicious persons, but without success.

This offence reportedly occurred sometime between 3 p.m., after school was dismissed and before the security officer went on duty.

The break-in and theft of food and sporting items from the Greenbay Primary School took place overnight when there was no security on those premises, as well.
