Area High Schools Vandalized

Police are asking for help from the public as they search for information related to recent vandalism at both the Comstock and Gull Lake High Schools.

Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department deputies received a malicious destruction of property complaint at the Comstock High School, located at 2107 North 26th St., on Friday, according to a news release.

"School officials discovered a large amount of vandalism involving spray paint on numerous structures on the school property," the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department said.

According to Comstock High School Principal Josh Cunningham, a surveillance camera shows the vandalism was done by three individuals after 3 a.m. Friday.

The buildings vandalized include the football stadium press box, a storage building, concession stand, track surface and the dugouts, press box and concession stand at the baseball field.

Down the road at Gull Lake High School, the damage is much the same – more obscene symbols and curse words, trying to ruin the fairly new turf on the football field, scribbled on the walls of the concession stand.

There are similarities in the two crimes, but right now, police don't know if the same people are behind it.

Both the Comstock High School and the Gull Lake High School are putting up $1,000 each for information leading to the arrest and conviction of subjects involved in these crimes. 

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office is asking that anyone with information to contact KCSO at 269-383-8748, the Comstock High School Superintendent's Office at 269-250-8907, or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.  Tips can also be submitted online at www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.


Silent Observer encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and lack of interest.

Silent Observer provides a telephone number and web tip page  to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in their crime-fighting efforts.   In addition, Silent Observer can receive  text messages which enables Silent Observer and the tipster to communicate back and forth anonymously.

Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest and conviction, or grand jury indictment, of a felony offender.

Silent Observer relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
