Police seek tips after Satinwood School vandalized after major party

A large party at the Satinwood School near Joffre left a path of destruction.

Blackfalds RCMP were dispatched to the party around 11 p.m. on Saturday.

Witnesses say between 100 and 300 people were at the location drinking, playing loud music and causing a disturbance.

Police found youth drinking alcohol, lighting fireworks, and fights were beginning. A large bonfire was also burning on the grounds.
