On Sunday, September 30, 2012 Pleasanton Police Officers were dispatched to Pleasanton High School for a report of a fire alarm going off inside the building. Once officers arrived they entered the building and detected the smell of burning paper in the main hallway. After officers ensured there were no active fires anywhere in the building they began to collect evidence and discovered that a 12’ x 10’ cork board hanging in the main hallway had extensive fire damage. They also discovered three other burned posters along the walls. An open window at the north end of the hallway was determined to have been the initial point of entry. Upon reviewing the school’s security camera, they observed a possible male subject approximately 5’7-5’11” tall and 180-240 lbs., age approximate 15-20 years old. The suspect entered the building and lit posters and cork board on fire. The burning of the posters caused damage to the walls while the burning of the cork board caused damage to both the wall and ceiling panels above it.
