Suspects have been identified after a classroom at Loomis Grammar School was vandalized and a computer was stolen last weekend.

Gordon Medd, Loomis Union School District superintendent, said three windows were broken and a computer was taken on or after Saturday, Oct. 20.

He said a passerby noticed the broken windows on Sunday and called the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. A deputy responded and school officials were notified.

Dena Erwin, Placer County Sheriff's Office spokesperson, said deputies have identified two juvenile suspects, but no arrests had been made. "They are talking to them at this time, Erwin said.

Medd said on Monday that quick work by the resource officers for the Loomis District and Del Oro High School brought about a speedy conclusion.

“The suspects have been identified and the computer was recovered, but it had been destroyed and was not repairable. They took it with them and it was damaged beyond repair,” Medd said.

Medd credits Placer County Sheriff’s Office deputies Curt Honeycutt, elementary school resource officer, and Mike Bennett, Del Oro’s resource officer, for work well done.

“They were outstanding in how quickly they were able to gather information and identify suspects. The support we got from them as a district was outstanding,” Medd said.
