Aden Shatalow-Dominick, 22-years-old, has been charged with Mischief over $5000 in connection with the mischief caused to the Fernie Aquatic Centre on October 29, 2022.

On the morning of October 29, 2022, officers attended the Fernie Aquatic Centre on Pine Ave following a report of extensive damage to the building, which rendered the swimming pool unusable. Police investigation revealed that broken windows on the upper level had caused rocks and glass to fall into the pool, necessitating significant repairs and cleanup efforts.

The incident severely impacted the Fernie community, cancelling the swim meet and preventing residents from accessing the pool facilities. The estimated costs associated with the damage, including window repair, pool cleaning, and equipment maintenance, exceeded $30,000.

"The Elk Valley RCMP extends its gratitude to the community of Fernie for their patience throughout this investigation, says S/Sgt. Svend Nielsen, Detachment Commander.
