By Jim Patten

LAWRENCE — Rock-throwing vandals did $3,000 worth of damage at Central Catholic High School, police said.

School Maintenance Director John Ostrowski told police three double-paned windows on the Fairmont Street side of the school building were cracked and broken when he reported for work Monday.

Ostrowski told Officer Adam Goujon that when everyone left for the day Friday at 4 p.m. the building was undamaged.

The estimated value of the windows is $3,000, police said.

The damage was reported at 11 a.m. Monday, police said.

Thief damaged one car, tree limb fell on another

HAVERHILL — Maria Arce called police to report someone had smashed the passenger side window of her 1992 Honda Accord and damaged the ignition trying to steal it, police said.

Unable to start the car the thief instead took a Sony amplifier, an Aiwa car stereo and a bag containing assorted handtools, police said.

As she awaited the arrival of Officer Lance Dawkins at her High Street home to report the damage, Arce said a tree limb fell on her 1998 Audi station wagon, smashing the windshield, police said.
