Centreville High School damaged by vandal

The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department is investigating an act of vandalism at Centreville High School last week.
Sometime between 11 p.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. Friday, someone engaged a front-end loader and drove it into a wall at the northwest corner of the junior high/high school building. The collision caused a wall to collapse inward, resulting in damage that school officials estimate to be in the thousands of dollars.
Investigators were able to obtain fingerprints and DNA evidence from the scene and are continuing their probe into the case. A black pickup truck was seen in the area around the time of the incident, authorities said.
With a team of construction workers on site already for Phase 2 of a three-phase upgrade, the brick wall will be rebuilt and fully repaired by the time school starts in another month, according to school officials.
