Nelson police catch LVR vandals

The Nelson Police Department have wrapped an investigation into extensive vandalism at L.V. Rogers.

The Nelson Police Department have wrapped an investigation into extensive vandalism at L.V. Rogers in early August by going through the restorative justice route.

Just before 4 a.m. on August 3 the local department received multiple reports of glass smashing in upper Fairview. Upon arrival, it was apparent that the school had been the subject of an excessive amount of vandalism. There were multiple windows shattered as well as other damages sustained.

After a month-long investigation, police identified three youths responsible for causing the more than $5,000 damage. All parties have went to the Nelson Police Department accompanied by their parents and took full responsibility for their actions and have prepared letters of public apology.

“I cannot express how remorseful I am of this situation and the shame I’m carrying with me,” stated one youth. “To all of those in our in our beautiful Nelson community, I am deeply sorry.”

The youths are first time offenders and as such the matter will be proceeding through restorative justice.

The Nelson police are thanking School District 8 and the staff at LVR for their cooperation and partnership in this investigation.
