In Wood Middle graffiti incident, reward offered

The town of Danville and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District have joined forces to offer a cash reward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for spray painting threatening graffiti near Charlotte Wood Middle School.

The graffiti, written in the creek bed adjacent to the school's entrance, threatened harm on May 8, which led some families to keep their kids out of school. The Danville police department and the school district have continued to investigate the incident and are asking for the community's help in identifying those responsible.

"This person may think that what they did was a simple prank," said Police Chief Steve Simpkins. "But the reality is they threatened the safety of people in our community and we do not take that lightly."

"This situation has caused a lot of anxiety in our community," said school district Superintendent Mary Shelton, adding she hoped that the reward would help bring the situation to a close.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Danville police department at 925-314-3700 or tips@danville.ca.gov.
