Several bus shelters were vandalized in Williams Lake sometime overnight Saturday and into Sunday, the RCMP said Tuesday.
The RCMP were first alerted to the damage at 5:39 a.m. Sunday when a caller reported seeing broken glass in the bus shelter at Fourth Avenue and Oliver Street.
When police attended the scene they discovered glass all over the ground, but no item was recovered nearby that may have been used to break the glass.
The bus shelter across the street did not appear to be damaged, however, subsequent investigation revealed other bus shelters at Yorston Street and Third Avenue South, Cameron Street and Second Avenue North, Maple Street and Second Avenue North, Midnight Avenue and Western Avenue, Eleventh Avenue North and Blair Street, South Lakeside Drive and Paxton Street, South Lakeside Drive and Hodgson Road and Broadway Avenue South at the Tourism Discovery Centre had all been damaged.
The RCMP are asking anyone with information about the vandalism contact them or call Crimestoppers.
