A police cruiser in Nakusp was vandalized this past weekend, and now RCMP are asking for public help in tracking down the suspect.
According to police, the vandalism happened during the early hours of Sunday, June 14, at approximately 2:52 a.m., with surveillance video capturing the incident along 5th Street NW.
Nakusp RCMP say the suspect caused mischief to three vehicles in the area, including a fully marked police cruiser.
“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.
