MILLINOCKET, Maine — Vandals broke into and damaged the youth baseball and school equipment shed at Granite Street School overnight Wednesday, spray-painting slurs on some walls, police said Thursday.
School workers reported the vandalism at about 7:45 a.m. They and youth baseball officials were still determining the cost of the damage and whether anything was stolen, Police Chief Steve Kenyon said.
“It doesn’t look like they took anything,” Kenyon said Thursday. “It was more like people messing around. They went in and kind of messed the place up.”
The vandals apparently broke into the shed by breaking a metal partition over the snack window and got out by breaking a deadbolt on a metal door, Kenyon said.
They apparently spray-painted a half dozen slurs and obscenities on one of the walls, Kenyon said. Anyone with information about the crime can call Millinocket police at 723-9731.
