Vandals ordered to work at or donate to damaged historic site

  • Print

Five Brandon youths who vandalized a historic site last year have been ordered to perform community service or give a donation to help maintain the site.

Carberry RCMP said today that the five young people, whose identities are protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act, were dealt with by the John Howard Society Community Justice Committee after police received tips from the public.

The committee’s sanctions ranged from 24 hours of community service at the Criddle Vane Provincial Heritage Site to a $300 donation to the community committee which looks after the site.

The site, which protects the homestead of emtomology pioneer Norman Criddle, was damaged last winter by vandals who smashed windows, marked and damaged walls and doors within the St. Albans House and other outbuildings there.

RCMP said they are asking the public to continue to help them identify other people responsible for vandalizing the site by calling 204-834-2905.
