Prince Rupert RCMP detachment hit by vandalism spree

Prince Rupert's RCMP detachment was
the scene of the crime after an extensive
vandalism spree in the parking lot last week
In what is a rather brazen display of when it comes to vandalism in the city, ten vehicles parked in the parking lot of the Prince Rupert detachment of the RCMP had their tires slashed shortly before 1 AM on Thursday, June 23rd.

The details behind the vandalism spree were outlined in a media release issued by the RCMP late last week, with the background to the incident noting that in addition to the extensive cost to replace the tires, a more troubling concern is the disruption to service that the incident could have delivered to the community.

Members of the detachment offered up their main area of concern related to the incident and how the damage inflicted to the tires could have limited response time in the event that the public required police assistance, or if police had been required for any kind of a life threatening call.

The RCMP is asking for the assistance of the public on the case file and ask that anyone who may have information regarding the vandalism to contact the detachment at 250-627-0700 or through CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
