Vandals hit Escambia County High School for a second time on Sunday night with the suspects busting out windows in the school’s cafeteria to enter the building.

The break-in was discovered just one day after school officials found several things in disarray from a Saturday night break-in.

Escambia County High School principal Zickeyous Byrd said it looked as if the suspects were again looking for money.
