Villa Teresa School reports series of vandalism

Officials at Villa Teresa School hope the release of surveillance photos of two males will help solve a series of vandalism at the private school.

The photos, taken at 3:17 a.m. Saturday, show two young men running across the property. The photos were released by the Oklahoma City Police Department.

"They didn’t realize there was a camera out front,” said Sister Veronica Higgins, principal of Villa Teresa, 13501 S Western Ave.

Police are investigating the incidents, said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow, police department spokeswoman.

The school, which offers preschool education and child care, has been troubled with vandalism since November, Higgins said.

In the most recent incident, two classrooms were "demolished,” windows and religious statues were broken and someone defecated on the floor, Higgins said. Racial slurs were written on classroom white boards, and acid was splashed on doors, she said. A tricycle was thrown on the roof and toys in the room for 3-year-olds were broken.

Police have several complaints on file. has disabled the comments for this article.
