The Castlegar RCMP is once again investigating mischief complaints. There are instances around town of vandalism in which persons are spray painting or drawing various things on buildings and vehicles. The most recent rash of this damage occurred at the library. Vandals spray painted the walls, drew various things on the walls, and left garbage strewn about. There were also burn marks on placards on the building.
Police are examining evidence that was left behind, and have increased foot patrols in various targeted areas, but they are also asking that the public keep an eye out for anything suspicious when out walking .
Any suspects found to be committing such damage will face criminal charges of mischief.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Castlegar RCMP at (250)365-7721.
