Vandals damage roof of Broadneck Elementary

Vandals caused about $1,000 damage to the roof of Broadneck Elementary School over the weekend, a school maintenance supervisor said.

The damage at the school, at 470 Shore Acres Road, was reported to county police by chief custodian Ed Connell at 10 a.m. Sunday.

The vandals climbed rainspouts to the roof, then removed a panel from an 8-foot-long air conditioning unit and damaged a water heater vent stack, police said. Beer cans and a lighter were collected from the rooftop.

"Our roofs are very attractive for young people because they can sit in the middle of the roof and nobody can see them," said maintenance supervisor Ed Almes.

No arrests have been made.
