Police: Burglars strike school




Police are investigating a weekend break-in at a Franklin elementary school.

One or more vandals broke into Webb Elementary School, and the damage was discovered Sunday afternoon. A parent who was at the school with a 4-H club asked a teacher to call police after finding a broken window on the north side of the school, according to a Franklin Police Department report and Franklin director of operations Bill Doty.

Whoever broke into the school was cut by broken glass; blood was found on the window sill, an inside wall and on the floor, the report said. The vandal also wrote graffiti on a wall in the school, climbed a natural gas pipe to get onto the roof and broke a second window on the roof, Doty said.
