Herndon High School Outdoor Areas Vandalized

Herndon High School was hit with several incidents of graffiti, school officials and students discovered on Monday.

The school’s football field and nearby outdoor areas were defaced, including using anti-semitic and racial slurs and offensive sexual images.

Fairfax County Police said a morning incident in which the police helicopter was nearby the school on Bennett Street was unrelated to the graffiti incident. In the helicopter search, police were looking for a man who was involved in illegal activity, possibly drug-related, at Dranesville Road and Route 7.

Police did not catch the suspect, Officer Don Gotthardt said.

Herndon Principal William Bates says the school is working with police to catch the vandals.

“We have taken steps to begin the process to clean the surfaces that were vandalized,” he said.  “This is a criminal act and we will be working closely with law enforcement to hold the perpetrator(s) accountable. ”
