Vandals hit Superior Elementary School twice smashing 14 windows, causing $10,000 in damage

SUPERIOR, Colo. - The Boulder County Sheriff's Office is searching for the people behind a series of vandalism incidents at Superior Elementary School.

Last weekend, the Boulder County Sheriff's Office confirmed vandals threw rocks through 10 windows at the elementary school which caused about $10,000 in damages. It's the second time the school has been hit, in total, 14 windows have been broken.

"Why would somebody do that to the best school in the world," said student Colin Folsom, who discovered the vandalism.

"It's pretty bad," said his brother, Nick, who is also a student at the school.

Investigators said they believe older kids may be behind the destruction. They've swabbed the scene for DNA in hopes of finding the culprits.

A note was posted to an online community board warning neighbors about what had happened and asking them to be on the lookout.

"On Indiana, with all the noise, if it was done during the daylight we probably wouldn't have heard," said neighbor, Jamie Dixon.

A spokesperson for the Boulder Valley School District said they have beefed up patrols in the area in hopes of preventing a third hit. In the meantime, the Folsom brothers have a message of their own.

"I would say that's not OK and I think they should just pay for it because that's gonna cost a lot of money to fix. It's just sad, very sad," said Colin.
