Vandals Smash Statue, $700 Damage, Garrigan Police here are studying clues and continuing their investigation in an effort to turn up the sacrilegious vandals who inflicted an estimated $500-700 damage to a life-size statue of the Virgin Mary and portraits of Pope Paul VI and Pope John XXEI in the Garrigan high school foyer sometime during the night Thursday. Discovery of the break-in and subsequent acts of vandalism was made by Father Marvin Boes early Friday. Police Chief Al Boekelman and Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst hurried to the scene to view the damage and begin an investigation. The vandals (or vandal) gained entrance to the school through a window in the east (back) side of the building, which was broken, Once inside, the statue was toppled from a 3 1/2 ft. high permanent pedestal, landing on its head, which was shattered, pieces may be seen in the photo above, which was snapped by the sheriff. Then, the pictures of the two Popes were marked with what are apparently burns from a cigarette lighter. Father Cecil Friedmann, Garrigan supt., stated the statue was beyond repair - and must be replaced. As of Sunday, no arrests had been made. It was rumored the culprits might not be from this immediate area, although authorities have not stated what their investigation had revealed. Break-ins are always very difficult to solve. A three day retreat at the school had ended at 11 a. m. Thursday.
