Sheriff’s Office investigates vandalism at high school
The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information related to a vandalism case in which someone shot out several windows at Stonewall Jackson High School in Quicksburg.
Capt. Wes Dellinger said he believes the crimes occurred between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on either Nov. 25 or Nov. 26
“There were seven windows that appear to have been shot out with what we believe to be a BB gun,” he said. “It appears the BB gun was discharged from the exterior of the building and on several different sides.
Dellinger said each window costs roughly $300 to replace, totaling about $2,100 in damage.
Investigators believe the crime occurred during the given time frame due to vehicle activity seen in surveillance footage of the property. Dellinger said the department is not releasing any more information on the footage at this time.
Dellinger said anyone with knowledge of the crime is encouraged to call the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office at 540-459-6100.
Last weekend’s incident was not the force’s first brush with BB guns in schools. In early November, deputies charged three North Fork Middle School students with possession of a BB gun on school property. Deputies charged a man in September with pointing a BB gun at a school bus.
