Police round up school vandals
MOSSMAN police have made progress in tracking down the culprits that broke into the Mossman State High School between January 18 and 19.
A 16-year-old Mossman boy was charged on Tuesday as part of investigations into the alleged break and entry.
Up to five windows were broken during the break in, with perpetrators gaining access to the library and administration buildings. There was extensive property damage inside, with chairs thrown around, computers smashed and drawers rummaged through.
It will be alleged that the boy was with others who forced entry to the school complex.
The boy was arrested just after midday on Tuesday and charged with entering premises and committing an indictable offence.
Two other boys aged 13 and 14 have already been charged.
There’s still more work to do to get to the bottom of the case though - the three that have been tracked down are only a fraction of those believed to have been involved.
Mossman police reported that there were “a large number of children involved, and police still have multiple suspects to follow up.”
