An 18-year-old male who smashed several vehicles at a police station in Driftpile will have to work hard to pay his debt to society.
The teen pleaded guilty in High Prairie youth court June 25 to mischief to property and was sentenced to probation for nine months.
The teen cannot be named due to provisions included in the Youth Criminal Justice Act. He was a young offender at the time of the crime.
Youth court heard the boy broke into the vehicle compound at Lake- shore Regional Police Service station and damaged several police vehicles, said Crown prosecutor Petter Hurich. He did not specify the number.
A total of three vehicles were damaged, confirms Dale Cox, chief of police.
The teen broke door windows, Hurich said.
After his arrest, the boy told police he was intoxicated.
“Because many vehicles were damaged, Lakeshore had to borrow vehicles from other police detachments,” Judge D.R. Shynkar said during sentencing.
The teen was ordered to complete 40 hours of community service by the end of his probation.
