Vandals destroy glass at club

VANDALS struck in Stanthorpe on Wednesday night, causing damage at Stanthorpe State High School and the C.F. White Cricket Oval.

Stanthorpe police officer Senior Constable Scott Armbruster said police were called at 8am yesterday morning and told of the vandals' handiwork.

When they arrived they found smashed glass in both places. "There was broken glass and a broken door and window at the high school and a broken sliding door at the cricket club," Snr Const Armbruster said.

However, he said nothing appeared to have been taken.

In fact, it also appeared that the vandals had not gone into the buildings.

"It's been put down as wilful damage at the moment," Snr Const Armbruster said.

Nor was there any graffiti left at either of the sites, but police investigations were now under way.

"We're getting glass finger-printed at the moment," Snr Const Armbruster said.

The estimated cost of damage at the high school was put at $1000 and the cricket club about $500-$600.

Police urged anyone with information on the incidents to come forward or phone Stanthorpe police station on 4681 6400 or Warwick Police Station on 4660 4444.

If you wish to remain anonymous, phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
