The South Simcoe Police have closed the book on what it is calling an isolated, appalling prank.

Police were called to the intersection of Corner Ave. and Killarney Beach Rd. in Innisfil on February 24th, after an animal carcass was discovered inside an open briefcase, with an anti-Semitic symbol painted on the briefcase’s lid.

Following an investigation that involved extensive canvassing of neighbours for information and video surveillance, officers were able to identify three teenagers. Police say, instead of a targeted, criminal act, this was a case of an immature prank.

The animal involved was roadkill and deceased before the incident.
