The Murray County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the vandalism and burglary of Bagley Middle School on Highway 225 North. The incidents occurred over the weekend.

According to the first incident report, deputies were dispatched to the school on Saturday shortly after 1:30 p.m.

Deputy Darrell Summey filed the report and said that he observed broken glass outside the concession stand/field house.

“When I stepped closer,” Summey reported, “I observed where someone had broken into the building and vandalized the inside beyond recognition. I observed a Coca Cola store cooler pushed over, black paint splattered with profanity writing on the wall, interior door destroyed, sports equipment scattered and slung everywhere. When I went to observe the girls and boys restrooms, I discovered a very large hole in the wall of the girls’ restroom. I also observed sinks torn off the walls and smashed into pieces, bathroom stalls torn off the walls of both restrooms. Other damages include the boys urinals demolished and the outside exterior light smashed.”

A custodian manager had also noticed a broken window in the teacher’s resource room. Summey noticed broken glass in the area just behind the greenhouses. The window and snack machine glass had been broken and it appeared to the deputy that snacks had been taken.

Summey reported that dry blood was located in the resource from the broken window.

Detective Jim Davenport arrived on the scene and collected the blood samples and also collected blood from the boys restroom area in the concession stand/field house.

There are also reports that the school was entered possibly sometime Sunday night or early morning. A list of any items taken was not yet available at press time.

The investigation continues.
