D.W. Poppy toilet explodes overnight

D.W. Poppy lost a toilet in an apparent prank Thursday.

A small blast destroyed a toilet at D.W. Poppy Secondary early Thursday morning, school officials say.

“We did have a little incident at D.W. Poppy,” confirmed Langley School District spokesperson Ken Hoff.

He characterized the event as a break in with minor vandalism.

An unknown explosive was used to destroy a single toilet.

There wasn’t any other vandalism and nothing appears to have been stolen, Hoff said.

“Blowing up the toilet was enough,” he said.

Police were alerted by multiple alarms after 1 a.m., said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

She said there was about $1,000 in damage. The police report did not list an entry point, and it’s uncertain if the toilet destroyers actually managed to break in to the school.

There were no arrests.
