OPP have come to the rescue after a break-in to the Pelee Island Public School left students without their field trip proceeds.

The break in happened on November 7th, 2016. A quantity of cash was taken from the school, which had been fund-raised by students to support field trips and school events.

Assisting with the investigation, OPP marine operator Provincial Constable James Lyman coordinated a fund-raising initiative and rallied local officers, the Essex County cOPPs For Charity Committee and the Kingsville and Essex Community Policing Committees to raise $2,270.

The funds were presented Monday to Pelee Island Public School principal Richard Galloway, Pelee Island mayor Rick Masse and a number of ecstatic students who can now enjoy the proceeds as they were initially intended.

The investigation into these break and enter is still ongoing and the OPP ask that anyone with information regarding it contact them at 519-723-2491.
