$2K reward offered for information in Peachtree City elementary school break-in

After two vandals broke into an elementary school that’s undergoing construction in Peachtree City, the company overseeing the project offered a $2,000 reward for information in the case.

The suspects entered Oak Grove Elementary School twice and caused at least $13,000 worth of damage, Peachtree City police Sgt. Chris Hyatt told AJC.com. The first break-in was sometime overnight last Thursday.

The duo overturned several paint buckets and broke doors, white boards and building materials inside the school, police said. The suspects returned the next night, causing even more damage.

The damage caused the first night totaled at least $10,000, while an additional $3,000 worth of damage was done Friday night, Hyatt said.

Investigators were able to make impressions of fingerprints and footprints, and the suspects might have red, gray or white paint on their shoes or clothing. Hyatt said the two suspects are believed to be teenagers, and their motive is unknown.

Meja Construction, Inc., was overseeing the project and offered the reward for information that leads to a successful prosecution of those responsible, the department said in a Facebook post.
