Thousands of dollars in damage

Mindless “tagging” caused thousands of dollars in damage in Black Creek over the weekend.

At least four vehicles and six buildings were spray painted overnight on Saturday-Sunday, and police are looking for the culprit.

“The language used was offensive to the point that some people would not drive their vehicles in public after the damage,” said Const. Nicole Hall of the Comox Valley RCMP.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-338-1321 or  Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
