Multiple mischief and vandalism calls kept Prince Rupert RCMP active over the weekend

A number of acts of mischief and vandalism kept members of the Prince Rupert detachment of the RCMP busy over the course of the weekend, all part of a spree of activity that covered many areas of the city.

The first report of trouble came from the 1500 block of 7th Avenue East where three vehicles had their tires slashed on June 3rd.

June  4th and 5th brought a number of other reports of vandalism, included in the litany of destructive behaviour were two businesses that had their windows broken in the downtown area, two churches which were spray painted as well as Prince Rupert Middle School which was also spray painted.

The incidents continued on to the west side of the city where multiple vehicles were spray painted with black paint.

All of the incidents remain under investigation by the detachment, with the Mounties seeking the assistance of the public as they look for more information into the weekend's troubles.

In a media release from early Monday evening, Sargent Jagdev Uppal of the Prince Rupert detachment called for the public to keep an eye out in their neighbourhoods and to report any suspicious activity to the police.

Should you have been a victim of any of the weekend incidents, or if you have any information related to them you are asked to contact the Prince Rupert RCMP at 25-6527-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
