DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Vandals have targeted many of the 11 Dallas ISD schools shuttered as a result of budget cuts two years ago.

Despite the district’s assurance that the properties would be maintained, thieves have trashed and tagged the schools.

Some schools were stripped of water pipes and copper wiring.

A spokesperson for DISD told CBS 11 News that they have added extra security at those campuses overnight.
