Roof climb costs Lumby youth

Want to climb on a school roof in Lumby? It will cost as one youth found out the hard way.

A resident called Lumby RCMP July 6 to file a complaint of youth hanging out on the roof of J.W. Inglis School.

When the kids refused to come down and speak to RCMP, the police seized their bikes and skateboards in order to ensure attendance at the local detachment.

“In this case, one youth has been issued a $100 bylaw ticket to date,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce of the incident.

Proce said similar trespassers onto school property could be liable to a municipal bylaw ticket as high as $500.
