School Vandalism

Authorities in northwest Missouri are looking for two people who broke into a high school and caused more than $100,000 in thefts and vandalism.
The break-in at Platte County High School occurred sometime late Sunday or early Monday.
Reports indicate that surveillance video shows two people in hooded sweatshirts entering a computer lab, possibly after breaking through a window on the roof.
The sheriff's department says the thieves grabbed computers, then vandalized the school's phone system, three vending machines and administrative offices.
They also left graffiti.
The high school is located in Platte City, about 20 miles north of Kansas City.
