(Patch) The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District asked the sheriff's department to investigate the actions of a parent who took samples of window caulk from various classrooms that were tested to show high levels of cancer-causing chemicals, it was reported today.
A spokeswoman said the district reported a possible case of trespassing to Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies over the incident, Malibu radio station KBUU-FM reported.
Sheriff's Sgt. Matthew Dunn confirmed the department is conducting a felony investigation into the report of trespassing and vandalism. The department will ultimately submit the results of the investigation to the District Attorney's Office to determine if any charges are warranted.
