Assistance Needed Identifying Silverado Vandals

Sheriff’s officials are asking for the public’s help in identifying the vandals who caused approximately $60,000 in damages to the yet-to-be-completed Silverado High School sports complex over the weekend, San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials reported Thursday.
The damage was found after Memorial Day weekend. A metal door appeared to have been pried open, other doors were spray painted with gang-style graffiti although authorities do not believe the vandalism was done by gang members. Most of the damage was done to the Olympic-sized swimming pool. A scissor lift was submerged in the water and cracked the plaster as it landed on the bottom of the pool. A crane had to be brought to the school to pull the lift from the pool.silverado1

Crews had been working on a new $17.5 million sports complex at the high school that when finished will feature a 50-meter swimming pool with bleachers to seat 500 guest. Along with the pool an all-weather synthetic track and field, a 5,000-seat

stadium, a weight training building, lighted baseball and softball fields, and volleyball courts and locker rooms. The funds came from a $500 million bond measure local taxpayers approved in 2008.
