Two people are facing charges related to incidents of breaking and entering in Grande Prairie over the weekend.

Early Sunday morning, Grande Prairie RCMP was called to a report of a Break and Enter at Holy Cross School.

Police attended the scene with Grande Prairie Police Dog Services, and were notified that there was a second break and enter at IV Macklin School while searching the area; security officers who attended the call advised they witnessed two young people fleeing the scene.
