Kelowna RCMP members were contacted on January 15, 2022 after a senseless act of vandalism was discovered at the YMCA located on Hartman Road in Rutland. Two white Ford Transit 350 “Sunshine Coach” vans were targeted by vandals and had most of their windows smashed out. In total 10 windows were broken. The vans were also shot at by a BB gun.
