Hundreds of dollars in damages was incurred over the weekend by Ready Springs and Pleasant Valley schools in the Penn Valley area.
The vandalism included random spray paint on walls and a drinking fountain, some signs and coat hangers torn down, he said.
“One of the spray-painted walls looked like it had the word ‘stinky’ on it,” said Sgt. Tim Werner of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office.
As much as $50 is estimated to be necessary in covering up the paint; $300 for the water fountain; $150 for the signs and wall repair; and $200 for the coat hangers.
The vandalism at Pleasant Valley was reported at approximately 8:30 a.m. and Ready Springs around 10 a.m. Monday, Werner said.
Anyone having information about the incidents is encouraged to call the sheriff’s office at 530-265-1471.
“I think it was interesting that two schools got hit on the same weekend,” Werner said. “Nobody knows if it’s the same people that did both schools. I don’t know a reason for it.”
