On May 30th 2019 at 8:20 pm the West Shore RCMP received a report from a member of the public who advised they were witnessing three men use a cement saw to carve the pavement at the lagoon on Ocean Blvd in Colwood.
West Shore RCMP officers responded and observed the three men still on scene. They further observed the carving was in the shape of a swastika.
“All three suspects were arrested for Mischief under $5000,” said Cst. Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Relations Officer. “After being informed of the seriousness of the crime, the suspects told the officers they realized the error of their ways and apologized for the damage they caused. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crime as all three suspects had been drinking.”
The three suspects were released from custody by way of a Promise to Appear in court. The West Shore RCMP would like to thank the witness for alerting the police.
If you see a crime taking place report it right away by calling 911.
