The Perham Police Department is investigating a string of break-ins at the old Perham High School, 200 Fifth St. SE.

Multiple people broke into the old high school throughout June and caused thousands of dollars of damage, according to police Chief Jason Hoaby.

Damage included broken windows, graffiti and broken ceiling tiles.

Hoaby said the building is under video surveillance and a number of suspects have been identified. However, it will be a long time before charges are filed, due to the large amount of people involved, Hoaby said.

“Just because a building is vacant, doesn’t mean it’s a free pass for trespassing,” Hoaby said.
