“It is of great concern to the Nakusp RCMP that a police vehicle was targeted,” said Cpl. Jaime Moffat, “as damage to the vehicle could have resulted in a front-line police officer not being able to respond to an emergency call for service from the public.”

RCMP did not reveal the vandalism damage to the police cruiser.

The male suspect is described as being between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall, and was seen wearing a light-coloured hoodie over a baseball cap, light-coloured pants, black shoes with a reflective tab on the back and a light-coloured backpack with a black zipper.

If you have any information regarding this incident, you are asked to contact the Nakusp RCMP at 250-265-3677.
