A couple of kids received a talking to from Regina police after they managed to break into a North Central school after hours and steal some electronics.
According to police, the boys got a hold of a teacher’s key fob and then used it to enter the building on the 1100 block of Princess Street, which is where the Seven Stones Community School is located.
While inside, police said they stole items including a laptop computer and tablet then pulled the fire alarm. The fire department responded and then alerted police on suspicion it was a break-in. Police confirmed they were called to the school around 9:30 p.m. Monday for a report of a break and enter.
A short time after arriving officers found two boys under the age of 12 and recovered the stolen electronics, including the key fob.
Police spoke to the boys but, because of their ages, they can’t be charged.
Police said a report was not filed by the school regarding the missing fob.
Regina Public Schools spokesman Terry Lazarou confirmed that a staff member forgot it at the school and didn’t need it, so the fob was left and police were not alerted at that time. He said a police report was filed Monday night by a security group patrolling the school.
Lazarou added there will be ongoing discussions between the staff member and school administration regarding the incident, indicating it’s too early yet to say whether the staff member who forgot the key fob will face any kind of discipline.
