Manitoba RCMP have arrested three youths after a number of vehicles were damaged in Portage la Prairie last week.

Officers received a report of a break and enter at a local school at around 4 a.m. on December 1. The suspects gained entry to the school but fled before police arrived.

Police determined 10 school buses were also damaged during the break-in, while multiple vehicles had their windows smashed in the northeast part of the city.

RCMP used a police dog to track the suspects to a local business, where they were all taken into custody.

The males, aged 12 and 13, each face 29 charges for breaching conditions, breaking and entering, and mischief.

RCMP continue to investigate.
