“A couple weeks ago, I did put a claim in already with SGI unfortunately. It looks to me like BB gun shots, all up the side of my truck, and down the back and other side of the truck,” he said.

“Then recently, the tires have been slashed, so there’s some major damage to my truck right now.”

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 to help locate those responsible.
