Two youths are facing charges in connection with mischief in Pembroke over the weekend.
Officers with the Upper Ottawa Valley (UOV) Ontario Provincial Police were on patrol around 3:20 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 19, when they encountered the youths spray painting graffiti at the Pembroke Skate Park.
As a result of this incident, one 15-year-old youth from Pembroke was cautioned under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) and taken home to their parents.
A second youth, a 16-year-old from Allumette Island, Quebec, was arrested and charged with mischief under $5,000 and failure to comply with a release order.
The 16-year-old was held for a bail hearing and subsequently released to attend Youth Court in Pembroke on Sept. 29, 2022.
The names of the youths cannot be released under the provisions of the YCJA.
