File # 2023-254

The Golden-Field RCMP is looking to speak with three young men suspected in a mischief investigation after the tires on 14 vehicles were slashed last night.

Residents of the Glen Charlotte Manor, located at 512 8th Ave S in Golden, BC, called police at 8 a.m. (MST) on Saturday February 11, 2023 after they awoke to find their tires slashed. All the residents were alerted, and in total, puncture marks were observed on 14 vehicles.

Every vehicle in the parking lot facing the river was affected, leading police to believe this was not a targeted incident, but rather a senseless act of vandalism committed by people walking past on the river path.

There is video surveillance that shows 3 young men walking through the parking lot at 2 a.m., slashing tires and talking to each other. 

In Canada, Mischief related to property under $5000 is punishable by a prison term of up to 2 years states Constable Kat Robinson, Media Relations Officer for the Golden-Field RCMP. This is a serious matter. This is not something a normal person does for fun on a Friday night.

If you know who is responsible for this act of vandalism, please contact the Golden-Field RCMP detachment at 250-344-2221, or report a tip anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
