Cumberland Officials Offer Reward In School Vandalism Case

Posted Updated

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.C. — The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office hopes the lure of a reward will pay off.

Detectives are looking for those responsible for causing an estimated $500,000 in damage to the new Grays Creek High School last week.

Investigators said vandals broke hundreds of windows, poured paint on carpets, furniture and lockers and drove a forklift through a door.

The school was to be finished four months ahead of schedule. The construction company said the vandalism will set them back about three months.

A reward of up to $6,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in an unsolved school vandalism case.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at (910) 323-1500.
