High school graffiti still under investigation

Placer County sheriff’s deputies continue to investigate the graffiti incident at North Tahoe High School that occurred before homecoming weekend.

Deputy Russ Potts, North Tahoe High School resource officer, said officers are “getting closer” to determining who defaced the high school. After receiving several tips he said deputies do have a couple suspects in mind.

North Tahoe Middle and High School students discovered that their new campus had been vandalized Sept. 29. “KB Stoners” and expletives were written in spray paint over the windows and doors of the high school building.

Following the student cleanup, the building was also pressure washed. Nearly all of the spray paint is removed, but faint markings on the stucco remain, said Bill Frey, the high school principal. He said the school will have to lightly re-skim the stucco, and are currently trying to match the color.

There is still some talk within the community regarding the vandalism, though it has calmed down quite a bit, said Frey. Because the case is still being investigated, it remains an issue of conversation and concern, “but not the issue,” he said.
