Officers at Selby have arrested three suspects for burglary.
On Friday (2 September 2022) police received a report stating that Barlby High School had been broken into.
Officers attended and found that significant damage had been caused to the school buildings. A credit card and fuel card had also been removed from an office.
An investigation was launched and in the early hours of Saturday morning two 15-year-old boys and a 16-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of burglary and criminal damage.
The suspects were interviewed at a local police station and released on police bail.
Selby District Neighbourhood policing Inspector, Martin Wedgwood from North Yorkshire Police commented:
“A burglary is not something that a school should have to deal with as it prepares to head into a new academic year.
“We recognise the impact that crime of this nature has on a business or in this case a local authority.
“We will always do everything we can to thoroughly investigate burglaries and bring those responsible to justice.”
