RCMP arrest four suspects after Grand Forks schools vandalized

RCMP report John A. Hutton and Dr. D.A. Perley Elementary and Grand Forks Secondary were vandalized Monday.

Grand Forks RCMP made an arrest after three schools in the city were vandalized Monday.

The arrest came after officers responded to complaints at John A. Hutton and Dr. D.A. Perley Elementary schools and Grand Forks Secondary.

The first complaint came in Monday (March 27) as RCMP responded to a complaint of mischief at John A. Hutton and Dr. D.A. Perley Elementary Schools in the Boundary City.

Detachment Commander, Sergeant Jim Fenske said in a media release Wednesday officers were called to the schools Monday to discover that buildings had been subject to vandalism by spray painting and a window had been broken.

Estimated cost of the damage is $600.

“RCMP interviewed two young people about the incident, however, it was determined that they were not involved,” Fenske said.

Fenske said Monday evening officers were called to attend a complaint at Grand Forks Secondary School of mischief where a window had been broken.

“RCMP located and arrested four suspects,” Fenske said.

“The suspects cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act,” he added.

“The matter is still under investigation and it is unknown at this time if the mischief complaints to the other schools are related to the four suspects.”

RCMP is asking if anyone has information regarding these incidents to please contact Grand Forks RCMP at 250-442-8288 or Crime stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
