Blackfalds police tracking vandalism suspects

Police in Blackfalds are tracking an incident of malicious vandalism that has left vehicle owners out hundreds and even thousands of dollars.

Police in Blackfalds are tracking an incident of malicious vandalism that has left vehicle owners out hundreds and even thousands of dollars.

Const. Christopher Smiley of the Blackfalds RCMP said someone armed with a sharp object slashed tires on eight vehicles parked along Rolling Hills Ridge and West Gate Crescent some time late Friday night or early Saturday morning.

Most insurance policies and road hazard warranties do not cover that sort of damage, leaving vehicle owners to cover the costs, said Smiley.

One of the vehicle owners who Smiley spoke with said the tires on his vehicle cost $1,000 each and will not be covered.

Smiley said there does not appear to be any specific target for the damage, which appears to have been caused by one or more people out having fun at the expense of others.

He asks that anyone who can provide information about the incident call the Blackfalds detachment, 403-885-3300.
