Police are on the lookout for four suspects for vandalizing Woodland Park High School early Wednesday morning.

Woodland Park authorities say about 30 broken windows at the high school around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

An employee at the high school told police that he followed four suspects when the vandalism happened.

Police say the vandalism is a concerning trend. Since the beginning of August the Woodland Park Police Department has received five similar reports of vandalism.

The targeted properties include the Woodland Park High School (vandalized twice), the Woodland Park Middle School, the Woodland Park Teen Center, and two local businesses and one home.

Estimated repair costs for the total damage has not yet been figured out, but just from the schools, the repair cost is $41,000.

Police say they have surveillance video, fingerprints, shoe impressions and DNA in the crimes.

Police and the Woodland Park RE-2 School District plan to increase surveillance efforts in reaction to the crimes.

Authorities are also asking for the community's help in reporting any suspicious activity or persons. If you have any information about the crime, please call the Woodland Park Police Department, 719 687-9262.
Your tip may be eligible for a reward.

    With all the evidence the police have this shouldn't be too difficult to solve. It seems as if the people doing this really had a tough time in school. I hope they get taught a lesson they'll never forget this time.
