WASHINGTON — Vandals caused more than $20,000 in damage to a Fairfax County elementary school, police said Thursday.

Fairfax County police said they believe suspects caused both interior and exterior damage to White Oaks Elementary School in Burke, Virginia, during the overnight hours between July 2 and July 3. Police responded to the school on the morning of July 3 after a construction crew found destruction and signs of arson around the property.

The vandals damaged the school’s newly installed playground and a shed. The Fairfax County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the fires ignited inside the building. The estimated cost of damage to the building is more than $20,000, police said.
