Several real estate signs in the Cariboo-Chilcotin have been vandalized.
The Alexis Creek RCMP say they received a report on Monday, Nov. 14 that a number of “for sale” signs were vandalized in the areas of Chilanko Loop Road, Horn Lake, and Tatla Lake. Notes left on some of the signs read: “this land is not for sale” and “free,” as well as freehand drawings defacing the facial images.
Police say the signs cost about $150 each and are put up to provide greater exposure for property owners trying to sell in the remote locations. Under the Criminal Code of Canada, Section 430 mischief carries a penalty of a fine up to $5,000 or up to imprisonment for six months or both.
RCMP are investigating and ask anyone with information on the incidents to contact the Alexis Creek detachment at 250-394-4211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
