It's not just broken windows in the downtown core that are charting the path of vandalism, mischief and mayhem for the community, the latest incident of damage to property comes from the Prince Rupert Golf Course.

The Ninth Avenue West recreation facility used their social media stream on Monday to highlight the range of damage done to the Golf Course Maintenance compound sometime overnight on Saturday.  

With the Golf Course suffering thousands of dollars in damage done to vehicles and equipment.

The damage included what appears to have been a number of fires set to the equipment inside of the compound.

Officials at the Golf Course note that they are working with authorities towards the incident, but are also seeking out any information that the public may have towards the January 13th damage.

So far the Prince Rupert RCMP have not made mention of the Saturday incident through either of their information sharing platforms.
