Hamilton Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying several suspects involved in a series of school break-ins.
Between mid-July and mid-August, individuals illegally entered a Dundas secondary school on three occasions. While inside the building they caused damage and stole property.
On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, shortly before 4:00 a.m., three male suspects gained access to a Dundas secondary school by smashing a glass window. Prior to fleeing the scene, the suspects spray-painted racial slurs and symbols in several areas and stole the master keys to the building.
Five days later, the same male suspects returned with the master keys and gained entry into the school. The suspects were accompanied by two more individuals. The group stole various school items and fled the scene.
Then on August 15, 2020, shortly before 4:00 a.m., the same male suspects forced entry into the school by smashing a glass door. The suspects once again stole various school items and fled.
