Danville Police arrested an Alamo man for allegedly burglarizing a local high school Saturday evening.
Just after 6 p.m. Saturday, officers from the Danville Police Department responded to an alarm activation at San Ramon Valley High School in Danville. After arriving at the location, an officer observed signs of forced entry to the school’s administration building.
During a search, officers located and arrested an individual amidst evidence of vandalism and damage to several of the administrative offices.
According to Danville Police Chief Steve Simpkins, the suspect is identified as 23-year-old Alamo resident Nicholas Somers. Simpkins says the vandal is believed to have acted alone in his destructive crusade and the vandalism appeared to be more nonsense than targeted destruction.
According to his Facebook page, Somers is a former San Ramon Valley High School student who graduated within the past six years. He was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility for burglary.
Officers from the California Highway Patrol also responded after they caught wind that police could use their help searching the campus. Multiple officers spent time ensuring the entire campus had been cleared of any other potential suspects or damage.
Danville Police are still investigating the incident.
