Police have charged seven juveniles, including two females, after they admitted to illegally entering the Francis Lettsome Primary School in Greenland at least three times over the holiday weekend, resulting in widespread property damage.

According to police, four of the seven attend the primary school, while the other three are over primary school age.

The minors, between 12 and 16 years old, have confessed to the burglaries as well as destroying property and occupying the premises overnight.

Additional arrests are likely in this matter.

Upon inspection, Police observed broken glass louvers, damaged roof tiles, principal’s office ransacked, students’ reports and work destroyed, sick beds and bathrooms used and flooded, and juices from the kitchen stolen with the empty containers scattered around the premises.

The RVIPF Scene of Crime officers and Family and Juvenile Unit are continuing investigations into this matter.
