Spray paint vandalism in Kimberley

Unknown persons spray vehicles, greenhouse and school

  • Oct. 12, 2012 6:00 a.m.

On Thursday morning, Kimberley RCMP responded to a number of complaints of mischief to vehicles, buildings and signs.  Sometime overnight at least seven vehicles, a fence, signs, greenhouse and Lindsay Park School were damaged by green spray paint.  There was symbols like stars, circles and letter “A”.  There was profanity on a number of vehicles and structures.

The school and nearby residents were particularly concerned because of the graphic nature and the young children in the area.  They took steps to either hide or shield the painted surfaces which was appreciated.

The incidents occurred in Townsite between Fourth Ave and Lindsay Park School.

Police also receive a report of a broken window at the Presbyterian Church and feel it could be related.

If anybody has any information about this senseless act, please contact the Kimberley RCMP, 250 427-4811 or Crimestoppers.
