Graffiti vandal causes thousands in damages to downtown businesses

Thousands of dollars in damage was caused to several downtown Revelstok businesses after they were struck by graffiti Thursday.

Thousands of dollars in damage was caused to several downtown businesses after they were struck by graffiti early Thursday morning.

Revelstoke RCMP say the businesses on the 100 blocks of Second Street East and West were vandalized in the early morning hours of Thursday, Dec. 18.

“All three had extensive paint, pen or glass etching damage on the glass windows,” said Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky in a news release. “The material used is acidic, resulting in the need to replace the glass at each location in order to remove the writing.”

The suspect tagged the words “raw dog” on the windows, resulting in more than $5,000.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
