A 16-year-old boy is facing charges after a Halifax Regional Municipality school was broken into early Monday morning.
Halifax Regional Police say they responded to Park West School at 206 Langbrae Drive just before 12:30 a.m., after a local resident reported hearing “several youths” on the school grounds.
Police say the resident feared they were causing property damage.
Officers arrived at the school to find a broken ground-level window. A classroom had sustained property damage as a result.
Police also noticed several youths fleeing the school once they arrived.
One teen was arrested at the scene and taken into police custody. He is being charged with break and enter and property damage and has been released.
Anyone with information on the break-in is asked to contact Halifax Regional Police or Crime Stoppers.
