The facility at 1715 E. Forest Ave. in Ypsilanti Township was the home of Victory Academy, a charter school that closed after Bay Mills Community College chose not to renew its charter. The building has yet to be repurposed.
It’s not clear how the vandal or vandals got into the building, Washtenaw County sheriff’s Sgt. Geoffrey Fox said. Deputies found an exterior door propped open, and it may have been left unlocked, he said. There were no signs of forced entry.
A maintenance worker reported the vandalism about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, but the vandalism could have occurred any time in the past few days, Fox said.
Sheriff’s deputies are investigating, Fox said. Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call the sheriff’s department confidential tip line at 734- 973-7711 or 1-800-SPEAK UP.
