Authorities are searching for the person who vandelized Parkway High School early Friday morning.

Surveillance video shows a young man spray painting the glass doors and walkway leading into the school around 1:40 a.m. At one point in the video, the vandal walks away from the glass doors and appears to take a picture of his work.

When the administration arrived at school Friday, they found graffiti on the entranceway, including glass doors, windows and the concrete walkway. School officials also found graffiti on school banners, flags and on the road leading to the parking lot. Some of the spray paint includes vulgar words, alluded to Parkway’s band and resulted in more than $1,000 in damages.

Parkway High School is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for the vandalism. Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Deputy Paul Hopkins, School Resource Officer for Parkway High School, at 759-2209.

In a separate incident Thursday night around 11 p.m., four other people were caught on camerae hanging a school-pride banner at the entrance of Parkway High School. They were quickly identified as students from Airline High School, who placed the banner at the school in preparation for Friday night’s football matchup between the two schools. Their actions appear to be unrelated to the vandalism that took place nearly 2 ½ hours later. The four students were very cooperative with the School Resource Officer for Airline High School, and although they will not face charges from the Bossier Sheriff’s Office, they will receive school discipline.
