Appeal for witnesses following vandalism, Old Wick High School, Wick
13th April 2017
Police Scotland is appealing for witnesses after a number of windows were vandalised at the Old Wick High School, West Banks Avenue, Wick, Caithness.
This incident happened at around 10pm on Tuesday, 11 April, and around 30 windows were damaged.
At this time it is impossible to put an exact value on the damage but it is estimated to be in excess of several thousand pounds.
Inspector Marlene MacDonald said: "This is an example of utterly mindless and wanton vandalism. It is absolutely unacceptable that buildings in our community are targeted in this way.
"Whoever perpetrated this act must have spent a considerable amount of time outside the premises and we would urge anyone who saw anything concerning or suspicious in the area at the time to contact police as soon as possible on 101.
"As well as the monetary value of the damage, the impact on the community cannot be underestimated and I would urge the community to pull together to identify those responsible.
"If anyone has any information which may assist us please get in touch."
