Police News

The Fredericton Police Force’s Major Crime Unit has concluded their investigation into the case of vandalism at the Sgoolai Israel Synagogue, reported on January 27, 2024. With insufficient evidence to proceed in the investigation, at this time, no charges will be laid.  Should new evidence emerge, Police will investigate accordingly.

Based on the Criminal Code of Canada, a mischief to property charge that includes a form of bias, hatred or prejudice toward an identifiable group would be based on the offender’s motivation to commit the act,  and,  since no suspects were identified, Police were unable to make this determination.

Fredericton Police would like to thank the Sgoolai Israel Synagogue community and the public for their cooperation and assistance during this investigation.

Anyone with new information is asked to please contact the Fredericton Police Force at 506-460-2300, by email intelligence@fredericton.ca or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 referencing file# 2024-2066.
