Hamilton Police Service has arrested an individual in connection with the vandalism that took place on Locke Street last month.
On Saturday, March 3, 2018, at approximately 10:00 p.m., police responded to reports of a large group causing mischief in the Durand neighbourhood. A group of about 30 individuals dressed in black clothing with their faces covered, walked through the streets carrying a banner that said, “We Are The Ungovernables.” The group began setting off fireworks, damaging vehicles and throwing rocks at store windows.
Police received further evidence linking the Anarchist Book Fair at Westdale Secondary School on March 3-4, 2018, to the events that took place on the evening of March 3, 2018.
As a result, Hamilton Police have arrested 31-year-old Peter Hopperton of Hamilton for “Conspiracy to Commit an Indictable Offence.”
