On September 27th 2020 Bath Police responded to the new Morse High School building site for a report of vandalism called in by the construction crew. The vandalism consisted of broken windows, graffiti, tampering with construction supplies, and significant damage to school furniture that was stored pending building completion.
Additionally, further graffiti was found today that likely occurred again over the weekend.
The damage estimates exceed $1000 and detectives from the Bath PD Criminal Investigation Division have taken over the investigation, which remains active at this time. They are currently working several leads and have collected evidence for analysis.
“It is unfortunate that this damage has occurred to the new school and we have taken additional measures to prevent and deter further vandalism. I expect a successful investigation will conclude and the perpetrators held accountable”—Deputy Chief Booth
