MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho (AP) - Mountain Home police say two elementary schools were vandalized, resulting in more than $50,000 in damage.

The Idaho Statesman reports the vandalism is believed to have occurred either Wednesday night or early Thursday morning at North Elementary School and East Elementary School.

Police spokeswoman Melanie Broughton says two classrooms were flooded, printers destroyed and paint was thrown across the walls.

Officers believe the two incidents are related because of the similar in nature, and two suspects have been identified.

Broughton says that the city’s patrol division has been doing extra patrols.
