STORY UPDATE: Police have charged two people and say others may also be charged in relation to a break-in at Nagle Catholic College at the weekend in which up to 200 lockers were allegedly damaged.

The school issued a public statement last night saying the lockers were broken open by someone using bolt-cutters.

An 18-year-old man has been charged with one count of criminal damage and two counts of trespassing, while a 15-year-old girl has been charged with one count each of criminal damage, trespassing, graffiti and providing false details.

Police said inquiries into the incident were ongoing.

The school has asked students not to go to the school to check on their lockers, as the area is being treated as a crime scene.

Students whose lockers are affected will be notified by the school tomorrow when classes resume.
