St. George — Police estimated a St. George home had more than $50,000 in damage following a vandalism spree that was discovered May 9.

Knox County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Tim Carroll said the caretaker for the property on Wallston Road reported the break-in and vandalism shortly before 4 p.m. Deputy Arthur Smith and Detective Don Murray are investigating.

"By the extent of damage, there is obviously more than one person responsible," Carroll said.

He said windows were smashed out, furniture damaged, and a significant amount of valuable art work was destroyed.

The owners have been contacted and the department is trying to determine whether anything was stolen. The department is also trying to get a time frame for when the house was last checked.

Teenagers on a spree, more likely.
