'No camping' spray painted on family's camper in Grindrod

Covid vandalism on camper

A local family's camper was vandalized in the North Okanagan this week.

"No camping, COVID-19" was spray painted on the camper situated on private property in Grindrod.

"The property owners are neighbours of mine ... they have their family out every summer and they camp on the weekends," says Elliot Scott, who spotted the vandalism. "They are very respectful and nice folks who make use of their little slice of paradise."

Scott says the property has been used by the campers for over 15 years, and those who use the land are locals from the small community north of Enderby.

"The trailers are there all season, and they're wrapped up nice and neat while they are away," he adds. "I shared the photo so locals were aware to watch for problem people and have a chance to protect their property."

Virus-fuelled vandalism and targeted harassment is not an isolated incident.

Lug nuts have been loosened on visiting vehicles in the Okanagan, and cars have been keyed for having out-of-province licence plates.
