Vandals target YMCA passenger vans

“All three vehicles targeted, were registered to the YMCA and parked within close proximity of the building.”

The Kelowna RCMP are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect or suspects responsible for vandalizing multiple passenger vans in the YMCA parking lot over the weekend.

On May 29, 2017, a short time after 9 a.m. in the morning, RCMP received a report of mischief to three passenger vans left in the parking lot of the YMCA on Hartman Road.

“All three vehicles targeted, were registered to the YMCA and parked within close proximity of the building,” says Cpl. O’Donaghey. “A total of seven tires were punctured and deflated as a result.”

The investigation into the crime is ongoing and anyone with any information is asked to contact Const. Bizier of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
