On Tuesday, October 17th, Columbia Valley RCMP were alerted to a number of properties that were damaged by spray paint sometime overnight. The vandals spraypainted areas in and around the skate park shed, as well as property near the J.A. Laird school. The paint was on multiple surfaces outside including the exterior of the structures and the interior of the female washroom at the skate park. A number of different colours were used and the clean-up was painstaking. If anyone has any information on who may be responsible, they are asked to contact the detachment or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
