Fire, vandalism at Taft School
August 06, 2014, 05:00 AM

Redwood City police are asking the public for information related to a fire at Taft School in Redwood City and related graffiti Sunday night.

At approximately 8:20 p.m. Aug. 3, police and firefighters responded to a report of a fire at the school at 903 10th Ave. and found ornamental foliage on a fence on fire on the west side of the school. The fire was extinguished quickly and there was no permanent damage to the school or surrounding structures, according to police.

The fire destroyed about 15 feet of the foliage and charred the fence close to the school’s buildings, according to police.

Police also found graffiti and determined several additional locations where someone had tried to ignite the school structure. The graffiti appears to contain the letters “STAY” and is possibly related to a prior vandalism incident where the suspect tagged the words “STAY TRUE,” according to police.

The graffiti was with yellow paint and the subjects involved are believed to be three Hispanic male juveniles approximately 14 to 15 years of age, according to police. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Redwood City police at 780-7100 or Detective Joe O’Gorman at 780-7147.
