School vandals clean up their act

Ashley Sutton

Police caught two suspected vandals of a grade school and oversaw the two cleaning up the mess they made after Sonitrol Pacific detected suspicious activity February 2.

Monitoring Operator Ashley Sutton received an alert from the school around 10:30 p.m.  A wind storm in the area caused increased activity in the school’s system and Sutton consulted with a representative from the district.  He decided to investigate.

When he arrived at the school, the district employee could hear voices and asked Sutton to call police.

Snohomish Police located and apprehended two young men.  Papers had been thrown around and trash cans turned over.  Police oversaw the men in cleaning up the mess.
