RCMP say they are alarmed after finding two youth wearing gloves and balaclavas in an Invermere school.
Mounties responded to a potential break and enter at the institution in the early morning hours of July 7th.
They found an open door and conducted a walk-through only to discover a pair of teenage boys inside.
The two were arrested for Break and Enter, Wearing Disguise with Intent and Possesion of Property Obtained by Crime.
Sergeant Bob Vatamaniuck says they are taking the incident seriously as it seems the incident was premeditated.
Vatamaniuck does say they are determining whether criminal charges are warranted or if they can work with the school and parents to educate and rehabilitate the two boys, who are “around the age of 13”.
The Sergeant wouldn’t indicate if the boys were students at the school but he did say they are in the Invermere school system.
The youth were released to their parents on a number of conditions including a curfew.
