Police search for suspects in school vandalism


N-Break-in-school1The Michigan State Police in Lakeview and the Howard City Police Department are jointly working on a breaking and entering of the McNaughton Elementary school earlier this week.

MacNaughton Elementary, 415 Cedar St., in Howard City, was broken into  sometime between 8 pm Monday evening, May 27, and 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, May 28.

N-Break-in-school2Police said the suspect(s) did an extensive amount of damage to the interior of the school, causing officials to cancel school Tuesday. Many windows were smashed and individual rooms and a large number of computers were vandalized.

Last week there were reportedly two larcenies at the school and Howard City Police Chief Steve DeWitt said they may be related. Last week a very large stuffed animal “Moose” approximately 3 ft tall, and a smaller stuffed bear, was taken. Two cases of soft drinks were also taken.

If you or someone you know has information on last week’s thefts and/or this weeks breaking and entering, please contact the Howard City Police immediately at 231-937-4311. Information can remain confidential.

“Someone has information that will be useful,” said DeWitt. “We need your assistance in solving this crime against your school and your students.”
