Three charged after vandalism
THREE men have been charged after a derelict Dunedin former hospital building was targeted once again by alleged vandals.
Two 26yearold men and one aged 22 were located by police dogs at the former Glamis Hospital in Mornington at 10.40pm on Friday and apprehended.
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen said the men broke into the building and were damaging property.
They will appear in court today on a charge of unlawfully being on a property.
The building in Montpellier St has repeatedly been targeted by vandals, arsonists, trespassers and squatters since it was left vacant at least four years ago.
It was reported in December owner Leng
Seak Loke, who lives in Malaysia, planned to return Dunedin when he was able and make a decision about the building’s future.
