Vandals target school on first weekend of holidays

POLICE are calling on residents who live near schools to be mindful of intruders during the school holiday break.

It comes after someone smashed a classroom window and a glass door to the administration building at Darling Heights State School yesterday.

Toowoomba Criminal Investigation Branch acting-officer-in-charge Tony Morris said the offence occurred some time between 4pm and 5.30pm.

"They have used pavers to smash windows," Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Morris said.

He said entry was gained but was not sure if anything was taken.

The offenders fled when an alarm was activated in the administration building.

"We ask any nearby residents to schools to just be mindful of anyone on the grounds and contact police.

"We can determine whether it is lawful or not."
