Sylvan Lake RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying three suspects in an early morning vandalism spree.
Police say that sometime between 2:45 and 4 a.m. Friday, three male teens smashed windows and did other damage at six locations.
The rampage began at the Sylvan Lake Community Centre and then the culprits headed to the nearby Lighthouse Fellowship Church, and then the Dairy Queen.
They crossed the road to a strip mall, where they did more damage.
A parked truck, a restaurant and other businesses were vandalized in the spree, which caused more than $5,000 in damage.
“This senseless crime spree has affected businesses and citizens of our community during already difficult times. There is a significant cost associated to make crucial repairs,” says Sylvan Lake RCMP Staff Sgt. Jeff McBeth.
“The RCMP are committed to reducing crime in our communities and we will work tirelessly on identifying and locating the culprits responsible for the significant careless damage.”
The suspects are described as slim males in their late teens.
They were smoking cigarettes and wearing ball caps. One was wearing a Zoo York hoodie.
The suspects appear to have been on foot.
If you recognize the males in the attached photo, or have any information about these incidents, contact the Sylvan Lake RCMP at 403-858-7200.
