Byron school vandalized

By Tara Lindquist

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office is investigating vandalism at Byron High School. The call came into the law enforcement center at 7:44 a.m. on Friday from Principal Steve Willman reporting that the school's marquee sign, the bear statue out front of the high school and numerous other areas of the campus had been vandalized with graffiti.

Sergeant Kirby Long said investigators are reviewing surveillance footage from the high school. He also added that the vandalism started around midnight and there are several suspects that appear in the video.

Depending the dollar amount of the damage, the suspects could face felony level, damage to property, charges.

Long said they are unsure if the marquee will be able to be fixed or if it will have to be replaced. "It's just a matter if the damage they caused is temporary damage or permanent damage and things will have to be replaced," he said.

Principal Willman said the school has hired Service Master to clean up the vandalism.

"We've had students and community members that have offered to help clean up the mess," he said. "But we feel it is best to leave it the professionals." He also added he appreciates the support from the community and students. "It was nice to see the students understand the gravity of the situation and offer to help."
