Two young males were arrested after a series of break-ins to homes and vehicles in Wolfville early on Aug. 9.

The pair, aged 17 and 18, targeted five streets in the northeastern end of town. They stole mostly computer equipment and wallets.

Two vehicles had windows smashed in order to gain access. A number of items were recovered after the younger of the pair fled through a field and was apprehended.

The thieves struck Pleasant, Fowler, Iona, Highland, Gaspereau and Main Streets.

Then, on Aug. 10, four youth, aged 13 and 14, were caught vandalizing the Coldbrook Lions Hall about 7:10 p.m.

They dumped garbage, threw rocks, pulled up a sign and kicked a door.

Later the same evening, four youth, aged 15, were reported on the roof of Wolfville School. The boys and girls were arrested for mischief and trespassing.

Finally, a 14-year-old male youth was arrested 5:30 a.m. on Aug. 11 after a break-in to a business in New Minas. He was caught in the act by the owners.
