Police didn’t release the ages of the five, although under the Youth Criminal Justice Act they would be between 12 and 17.
RCMP said they were called to investigate on Monday after business owners found four vehicles that had been heavily damaged. They had had their windows and steering columns smashed in some cases.
Six other vehicles had been damaged less seriously. There was also a tractor cab and a side-by-side vehicle that had been damaged.
Police found a burnt-out vehicle on a grid road north of the town, too, and determined it came from the same business.
RCMP investigated and arrested the five boys. They have been released and will be appearing in court in January.
