Brighton police investigating bus barn vandalism

Posted

Brighton police are looking for two juveniles who caused substantial damage and discharged 20 fire extinguishers inside the 27J Schools public transportation facility in the 11700 block of Potomac Street.

It happened shortly before midnight on Aug. 1. Police said the pair entered the secured fenced parking lot on foot. They vandalized and trespassed multiple school buses at the location for nearly two hours.

Police think the two juveniles are males. One stands 5 feet 5 inches tall, perhaps as tall as 5 feet 7. He was wearing dark shorts and a dark T-shirt. The other was taller – between 5 feet 7 and 5 feet 10 inches tall with longer hair that covered his beck above his shoulders. He was wearing lighter-colored shorts, a baseball cap and a lighter-colored T-shirt.

"No impact to students and start of school," 27J Schools spokeswoman Janelle Asmus said in an email. "Our fabulously talented transportation has already come up with a plan that no routes will be cancelled or impacted."

Those with information should call the department's tip line at 303-655-8740 in reference to case No. 22-4253.
