Police are looking for the person who broke several windows at two Clayton County Schools, painted graffiti on a classroom wall and stole a laptop computer.
Some time between 6 p.m. Friday and 7:30 a.m. Monday somebody smashed the windows of Pointe South Elementary and Middle schools, both on Flint River Road near Riverdale, according to Clayton County police reports. At the elementary school large rocks were used to break the windows and a hammer was found at the middle school next to a can of green spray paint.
In one room at the middle school the words "(obscenity) 2-20 Pointe South hoe was here" were painted on the wall.
The term "2-20" is believed to be the name of a gang operating out of Riverdale, Clayton County Police Capt. Jeff Turner said.
Also, the alarm systems at the schools did not activate during the incidents and the security cameras did not record anything. The desks and cabinets of the classrooms were ransacked.
"The suspects obviously spent some time inside those classrooms," Turner said.
The computer was taken from the middle school.
It was unclear if anything was taken from the elementary school. The damage at the middle school was estimated to cost around $500, but no amount was released for the damage at the elementary school.
