West Kelowna irrigation systems vandalized

Police ask for public's help in finding the person/people behind it.

A recent rash of vandalism has plagued a number of West Kelowna irrigation watering systems.

Within the past two weeks, irrigation systems servicing the newly-upgraded portion of Brown Road in Westbank Centre, the upgraded Wine Route portion of Boucherie Road and the Rosewood Sportsfield have been damaged and/or turned off.

Police suggest the nature of the vandalism suggests a specialized knowledge in irrigation systems, and are not sure at this point if more than one person might be involved.

West Kelowna RCMP have been notified and are working with the District of Kelowna to identify who is responsible for the damage to the irrigation systems.

If you have any information regarding this vandalism to public property, please contact the West Kelowna RCMP Detachment at 250-768-2880.
