RCMP in Summerland investigating weekend spray paint tagging spree targeting vehicles

Spray paint vandalism spree

Summerland RCMP are investigating after a spree of vehicle vandalism over the course of the weekend.

From January 28-29, police were called to three separate incidents of vandalism damaging multiple vehicles, marked with spray paint and "alarming" words.

"So far the investigation is leading police to believe the vehicles were not specifically targeted, nor were they connected,” said Cst. Dayne Lyons, media relations officer for the South Okanagan RCMP.

“If this was meant to be a joke, it certainly wasn’t received that way.”

The incidents occurred on Brown Street, Kelly Avenue and Prairie Valley Road.

"While the exact time the events took place is not known, we encourage residents with cameras in these areas to review their footage for anything that may stand out," Lyons said.

Anyone with information regarding these reports is urged to call the Summerland RCMP at 250-494-7416 and quote file number 2023-202. To remain completely anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave your tip online at www.crimestoppers.net
