There has been another ransacking of a Griffith school this week.
Police were called to a Coolah Street School at around 1am Wednesday morning after a security alarm was activated.
It appears a person or persons unknown have gained entry to the building before ransacking a number of rooms throughout the school.
Police allege nothing was taken, however a number of Christmas presents were opened and gone through but were left in the rooms.
This incident comes after two schools on Coolah Street were damaged, defaced and ransacked in two separate incidents last week.
One school was broken into at around 10.30pm last Tuesday night, and another incident saw police once again respond to an activated alarm at another Coolah Street school at 2:30am last Saturday morning.
The rooms in both schools were ransacked heavily, however it is alleged nothing was stolen.
In other news, the Rural Fire Service (RFS) have had a relatively quiet week, however the volunteers have certainly been out and about.
They conducted a hazard reduction of about two hectares in Yenda on Sunday.
15 volunteers and four trucks were on the scene to control the burn off.
They also attended a vehicle fire on Sunday at Rifle Range Road.
Beelbangera Brigade attended the scene at 10.40pm to extinguish the blaze.
The vehicle was allegedly sitting there for a number of days before being set alight.
The RFS also wish to remind residents about fire safety over the festive season.
Residents of Griffith, Leeton, Carrathool, Hay, Murrumbidgee and Narrandera should to be prepared for fires over the holiday period, and to take care using Christmas lighting.
