One of the play structures at Paul Ecke Central was vandalized sometime over the weekend from August 15 - 16. Someone apparently used a power tool to cut through the plastic slide and plastic brackets on the play structure. Also damaged was a metal platform. Anyone who has information about the individual(s) who vandalized the play structure can contact the Encinitas Sheriff's Department at (760)966-3500 or the Encinitas Union School District Office at (760)944-4300.
An EU commenter tells us this is the second time this has happened to the same playground.
The list of suspects can't be that long. Only a few houses back up to that playground, and I'm sure there's one really obvious guy who's anti-social and not too bright. Probably even made noise complaints about the school in the past. The Sheriffs ought to be interviewing all the neighbors.
