Police arrest 3 young boys after two Saskatoon schools vandalized

Police arrested three young boys after two schools in Saskatoon were vandalized overnight.

It’s the second time this week that police responded to multiple calls of schools getting trashed.

It was just after 1 a.m. CST when officers were called to Pleasant Hill Community School on the 200 block of Avenue S S. They arrived to find someone had smashed in the glass by the main entranceway to get into the school.

They were investigating that scene when a second call came in that a break-and-enter was in progress at King George Community School, about nine blocks away on the 700 block of Avenue K S.

Officers with their canine colleagues scrambled to King George and surrounded the school. It appears the suspects had pried the grate off a ground floor window to get into the building.

The three boys were arrested trying to run away.

The 13 and 15 year old are facing charges of break and enter and commit theft. Police say the damages run into the thousands of dollars.

The ten year old is too young to face charges and was released to his parents.
