Two schools in Mississauga were broken into about a half-hour apart on Wednesday, police say.
Peel Regional Police says its 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect(s) involved in two break-and-enters on Aug. 11. Investigators believe the incidents may be linked to the same suspect(s); however, the investigation is ongoing.
Just after 1 p.m. that day, Peel officers responded with Mississauga Fire & Emergency Serivces (MFES) to a school in the area of Fairwind Drive and Wendron Crescent in Mississauga for a fire alarm going off and lots of smoke inside the school.
The school was evacuated when police arrived, and it was determined that the smoke was caused by fire extinguishers being set off.
Just before 1:30 p.m., Peel officers responded with MFES to a school in the area of Kingsbridge Garden Circle and Huntington Ridge Drive for multiple fire alarms going off. When officers arrived on the scene, they located a broken window and a rock inside the school.
No injuries were suffered during either incident.
There have been multiple acts of vandalism to schools within the same area of Mississauga in recent weeks.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-2121, ext. 1133.
