Guam - Vandals broke into M.U. Lujan Elementary School again. Assistant principal Erica Cepeda says they got a call from the Guam Police Department last Thursday that the doors at the school were open. She says they noticed two safes were taken into the main office and vandals were able to take nearly $300 from inside.

She says teachers collected the money for the end of the science fair. Hours after leaving the campus, Cepeda says an employee later noticed the office was again broken into. Cepeda says vandals made off with electronic items that were confiscated as contraband. She adds money was taken from a vending machine that was pried open, and teachers reported several school supplies missing. 

Cepeda says this is the 22nd time the Yona campus was broken into this school year. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact police or Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
