LIVERMORE FALLS — Police are investigating more than $10,000 in damage, which is a rough estimate, that was done at the former Middle School on Highland Avenue. 

It is believed that entry was gained through a back window between Aug. 15 and Monday, Police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said. There was a window that was previously broken but not big enough for someone to get in. The hole in the window was made bigger to allow entry.

It looks like someone took a metal leg and destroyed everything they could, he said.

The person(s) busted out interior windows such as those on doors and other interior glass, TV screens, thermostats, a speaker system, fluorescent lights and emergency lights, Steward said.

Sgt. Vernon Stevens responded to the call about the damage at 6:49 p.m. on Monday.

Evidence was collected at the scene and will be brought to the Maine State Police Crime Laboratory, Steward said.

Dana Cummings of California bought the school building through a bid process from Regional School Unit 73 in March. Cummings also owns the former Primary School on Baldwin Street.

The school building was closed several years ago and Livermore and Livermore Falls and Jay middle school students attend Spruce Mountain Middle School in Jay.
