One of the staff members at the Oyama Traditional School was surprised when she attempted to open the lock of the school’s greenhouse door and the lock fell off in her hand. It had been cut off with a bolt cutter and placed back to look as if it were intact. The east side of the greenhouse had a panel pushed or kicked in and a rib of the greenhouse was pulled away from the frame. Suspects had written words on the front door with a white marker. The only noticeably missing items were two new hand garden tools (one with a green handle and one with a blue handle).
