Welcome to Hay River!

From today's CBC News:

Police in Hay River, N.W.T., are looking for suspects in a string of vandalism incidents that took place over the weekend.

RCMP said vandals took trash cans and rocks to Diamond Jenness Secondary School, breaking six windows.

They also broke a couple of windows at Princess Alexandra School, as well as damaging several parked cars, police said.

"It was a series of events .… I guess the highlight is the six windows getting smashed out at the high school here," Const. Tyler Reid told CBC News on Monday.

"It was all around the school. There was no single area in the school that was targetted. It was more or less all the way around the building, some windows were smashed out."

Reid said police are interviewing two youth suspects Monday.

However, police believe more than two people were involved.

This is foolish. What they didn't mention is that these "kids" also flipped over a 4 wheeler in front of the high rise in town. I'm not sure why the "highlight" is the windows in the school. Damage to personal property to me would be higher on the list than the school, where funding is available to fix that stuff. But that's just me.
