Vandals damage school roof in Penticton

A roofing job at a local school took an expensive twist when vandals dumped tar on the building’s walls and windows.

The damage at Uplands Elementary was discovered on June 28 and the cost to repair it is estimated at $10,000.

“Unfortunately, the money to clean this up comes right out of the school system budgets which are already stretched to the maximum,” according a Crime Stoppers bulletin.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit www.sostips.ca. Information that leads to an arrest could result in an award of up to $2,000 and anonymity is promised.
