CHIPPEWA COUNTY, MI — Police say a group of children between the ages of 8 and 13 are accused of causing more than $20,000 in damages to the Bay Mills Indian Community Cultural Center last month. UpNorthLive reports the children will be prosecuted in a tribal court and prosecutors are seeking community service and restitution as part of a possible sentence.
The Bay Mills Indian Community is having to pay for the repairs to the property out-of-pocket as part of the insurance policy and cleanup is still ongoing at the property. The vandals destroyed portions of the building and many cultural artifacts according to members of the community.
The damage was discovered by members of the community nearly a month ago and the building has been closed since. Police believe the vandals gained access by breaking out a back window.
The Cultural Center is used by the community to host events and other gatherings. It is unknown when the repairs will be finished on the property.
