LOOMIS -- After the long holiday weekend, staff at Placer Elementary School in Loomis came back to find their campus in shambles Tuesday.

They found kicked-in doors, a broken fence and a busted vending machine.

They said the classrooms toward the back of the school were even worse.

"They actually took some computers and electronics, but those were actually recovered on the school grounds. They did about $10,000 worth of damages to the buildings and vending machines," Dena Irwin from the Placer County Sheriff's Office said.

Surveillance video obtained by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office showed what appears to be three teen-aged boys vandalizing the schools, sometime Saturday night.

District Officials said a car associated with the vandals was caught on video. They said that car was seen lurking around the school several weeks a row.

"The school resource officers are reviewing this video. All the school administrators are reviewing it. Hopefully among those people, we can identify those people," Irwin said.

No arrests have been made yet. If you know anything or saw anything suspicious on campus, you are asked to call the Placer County Sheriff's Office.
