Smashed walls were visible in one of the homes at the Criddle/Vane Homestead south of CFB Shilo after vandals caused damage to the provincial heritage park.

Carberry RCMP have credited news coverage by the Brandon Sun and CTV News regarding extensive damage to the Criddle/Vane Homestead for helping to find the culprits responsible.

Due to the news coverage of the extensive and systematic damage caused to the property, on Thursday RCMP said they received tips from concerned citizens regarding suspects.

The ongoing police investigation revealed that five rural Brandon area youths were responsible for part of the damage to the property. These five youths were dealt with by police under the Youth Criminal Justice Act and were deferred to the John Howard Society Community Justice Committee in Brandon, according to a Wednesday press release.

All five youths actively participated in the consequences established by the Justice Committee, which ranged from 24 hours of community service at the Criddle/Vane Provincial Heritage Site, to a $300 donation to the Criddle/Vane Committee, which maintains the site.

As they are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, the names of these youths will not be made public.

The damage had been systematically caused over the past summer, fall and early winter of 2011 and involved vandals smashing windows, marking and damaging walls and doors with the St-Albans House and other outbuildings located on the property.

The RCMP continue to monitor and investigate any damage caused to this isolated rural property and have asked for the public's assistance to further identify the vandals responsible.
