Some of the damage from a long weekend vandalism spree at L.V. Rogers secondary.

UPDATED: Nelson’s L.V. Rogers school vandalized

L.V. Rogers secondary school suffered an “excessive amount of vandalism” over the weekend, police say.

A Nelson school suffered an “excessive amount of vandalism” over the weekend, police say.

On Saturday, August 3 the Nelson Police Department received several calls reporting glass smashing in the area of L.V. Rogers secondary school.

“Upon arrival, it was apparent that the school had been the subject of an excessive amount of vandalism,” says a release issued by the NPD.  “There were multiple windows shattered as well as other damages sustained.”

Damage is valued at over $10,000.

Early in the investigation, police say they have suspects and are optimistic they will be proceeding with criminal charges.

The police are requesting any witnesses or any one with further information to contact them.

The school last suffered extensive vandalism in November 2010. In that instance, a 21-year-old Nelson man was charged.
