Quick police response stops break-and-enter at elementary school

The Windsor Police Service arrested three suspects after stopping a break-and-enter in progress at an east-end elementary school.

Shortly before midnight on April 6, 2024, officers were alerted to a break-in at a school in the 8400 block Cedarview Street. Officers arrived quickly on scene, spotted three individuals dressed in black clothing inside the building, and set up a perimeter around the property. When the suspects noticed the officers, they attempted to flee but were arrested after a foot pursuit.

During a subsequent search of the school, officers found property damaged and vandalized with hate-motivated graffiti.

Domenic Justin Leblanc, 21, and two 16-year-old males have each been charged with break-and-enter with intent to commit mischief. The names of the two underage suspects can’t be released under a provision of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
