A man has been arrested after Correlieu Secondary School was broken into three times in one week

A man has been arrested after a series of break-ins at Correlieu Secondary School.

The first break-in was reported by the school to the Quesnel RCMP on Dec. 11, and in that instance, a computer was stolen.

The second break-in occurred on Dec. 19, and during this incident, more than $1,800 of camera equipment was stolen.

The third break-in took place on Dec. 20. Nothing was stolen; however, damage was done to school property, according to a press release from police.

“The police have identified the suspect in the Dec. 19 break and enter,” Sgt. Richard Weseen said in the release. “The 18-year-old Quesnel man was arrested and released on an Undertaking. His name is not being released at this time. The investigations into the break and enters are ongoing, and the officers are working diligently to hold those responsible accountable.”

The police urge anyone who has information regarding these break and enters to call the Quesnel RCMP at 250-992-9211 or to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
