Spike in area vandalism sparks watchful eyes

Police are asking French Creek residents to keep their eyes peeled

FRENCH CREEK — Oceanside RCMP are asking residents to keep their eyes peeled for suspicious activities after a rash of vandalism complaints in the French Creek area recently.

“Many residents in that area have awoken on the weekends to find graffiti and property damage to local signs, bus stops and other infrastructure,” said Cpl. Jesse Foreman.

“These needless acts frustrate everyone and result in thousands of dollars in repair and cleaning bills.”

Foreman said police  need the public’s help to curb these acts of vandalism and he urged anyone who notices suspicious activities to call the police at 250-248-6111 immediately.
