KAMLOOPS - A principal is thankful for those who called police to report a break and enter at a Brocklehurst elementary school this week.

Deanna Brady, principal of AE Perry Elementary, says it’s ‘unfortunate’ the school had to replace several windows after someone attempted to break into the school Sunday, Jan. 10.

“It’s such a senseless activity and a waste of money,” she says. “This year we’ve been hit more regularly. We’d like to spend that money in other areas. We’re pretty lucky because the neighbour heard the windows break and called the police."

Brady was called to the school around 12:45 a.m. on Jan. 11 and says she suspects it might have been young adults who broke the windows and entered the school office. Brady says no items went missing; only a few were scattered outside. She notes nothing of value was in the office the evening of the break and enter. 

A spokesperson for Kamloops RCMP was unavailable for comment.
