Vandals smash cafeteria window, pour liquids over office equipment

Vandals smashed a window at Jordan Middle School over the weekend and destroyed office equipment in the school cafeteria, Palo Alto police said.

Police are investigating the incident, Palo Alto Police Sgt. Dave Flohr said.

Flohr said the intruders also entered a second building on campus and broke a small window on the door to the computer lab, but apparently did not gain entry to the lab.
