ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque Public Schools officials say the damage caused by vandals to Wilson Middle School may exceed $80,000.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1m6QtqC) a small group of vandals threw paint, broke glass and toppled tables, shelves and computers in eight classrooms at the school Tuesday.

APS’s director of maintenance and operations says the $80,000 damage estimate doesn’t include the expense of replacing laptop computers, large smart screens, projection cameras and science lab materials smashed in the attack.

Police are investigating how the vandals got into the rooms, noting there were no signs of forced entry through window or doors.

School officials say the rooms should be in usable condition by the time students return on Jan. 5.
