Police responded to three incidents on Wednesday and another on Friday where police determined lights had been tampered with “to activate the crossing lights indicating that a train was coming, even though none were,” read a news release.

Police say that in one of the incidents, the lights were tampered with to shorten the warning time of an approaching train by more than 50 per cent.

RCMP say the investigation into the tampering is ongoing, “and would like to remind the public to exercise caution when approaching railway crossings at intersections with public roadways.”
