A 54-year-old man has been arrested following a breakin and theft at Waterhen Lake School on August 20th.

RCMP say Bruce Richards was arrested on Tuesday and charged with breaking and entering, theft over five-thousand dollars and mischief.

During the breakin, students computers and ipads worth over fifty-thousand dollars were stolen.

Last week RCMP released a video of the theft at the school and appealed to the public for information.

Richards is scheduled to appear in Meadow Lake court today.
