West Bloomfield Schools closed due to vandalism

Vandals caught on camera damaging buses

WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. - The West Bloomfield School District was closed Monday after at least 15 buses were vandalized.

Fuses were pulled from some of the buses, electrical systems damaged and tires flattened.

Police said the vandalism at the bus yard, which is in Orchard Lake, was caught on surveillance cameras.

Police said the tape shows two people jumping the fence at 9:30 p.m. Sunday and leaving the yard just 30 minutes later after committed the vandalism.

"It's very frustrating," said deputy superintendent Tom Goulding. "It was the start of our second semester and I know it's frustrating for our school district, our parents, our staff."

Police said one of the vandals was wearing a blue or periwinkle ski jacket with dark bottoms. The other had on white bottoms with a black or dark green jacket.

Surveillance cameras were installed in the bus yard after vandals struck the area in 2006.
