The Winchester Police Department (WPD) is asking for the public’s assistance to help identify the suspects involved in vandalizing portions of John Handley High School.
School staff arrived this morning to find more than a dozen markings on all four sides of the building and worked quickly to remove the graffiti. Surveillance video captured at least two men spray painting graffiti on the exterior of the school just before 1:00 a.m. on March 27.
The Winchester Police Department works closely with Winchester Public Schools to ensure the safety of all students, faculty, and guests, and has a full-time School Resource Officer who primarily works on the campus of John Handley High School. School officials and officers are working together to investigate the crime and do not believe there is a threat to students.
Anyone with information regarding a suspect in this case is asked to contact the Winchester Police Department at (540) 545-4704, or Crime Solvers at (540) 665‑TIPS (8477). Information leading to the arrest may result in a reward of up to $1,000.
