St Finbarr’s Catholic Primary School and Byron Bay High School were both broken into on Tuesday night and property was damaged. The schools are situated opposite each other.

At 2.45am St Finbarr’s alarm was activated. A check found the front door had a bottom pane of glass smashed.

Police told Echonetdaily an unknown person gained entry into the main office, ransacking the office, opening drawers and cupboards.

The school said it doesn’t appear that anything was stolen.

Soon after, the cleaner at Byron Bay High School found a rear glass door smashed.

Police said offenders entered the front foyer where damage was caused to a computer keyboard and a screen was smashed. Again, it appears nothing was stolen.

The motivation for the break-ins is unknown and police enquiries are continuing. Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
