Three teenagers were arrested last weekend in connection with a break-in at Promontory Heights elementary school that left the school’s kitchen destroyed.
Two suspects turned themselves into police last Friday and another was later arrested in connection with the March 29 vandalism and thefts, according to Chilliwack RCMP.
“We received overwhelming assistance from the public which aided our investigators to identify three teenage suspects,” said Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail.
Some property from the robbery, which a source reported was laptop computers, was also been seized.
On April 6, one suspect was arrested by police. Later that evening the other two turned themselves in.
All were later released from police custody.
Then, on April 7, the Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) supported by the Quick Response Team (QRT) and General Duty (GD) executed a search warrant of a residence in the 45000-block of Spruce Drive where police seized property linked to the school, according to Rail.
The RCMP will be submitting all evidence to the BC Prosecution Service for their assessment of criminal code charges for break and enter to commit theft over $5,000 and break and enter to commit mischief over $5,000.
