Greater Trail RCMP asking for public's help following rash of vandalism at BV Middle School

Trail police seek public’s help to identify vandals

Following a rash of vandalism at Beaver Valley Middle School, Greater Trail RCMP are asking public for help.

Following a rash of vandalism at the Beaver Valley Middle School, police are asking for the public’s help identifying the culprits.

Since April, Greater Trail RCMP have responded to four reports of defacement and damage to the Columbia Gardens Road property, which has been vacant for a number of years.

Besides spray paint graffiti, windows have been smashed out and doors kicked in.

The latest incident happened late last week, probably Friday night (July 17), says Cpl. Darryl Orr, adding the detachment received the report the following day.

“We went out to the incident and the officer ran the property,” he explained. “From that (he) saw there’s been a lot of stuff going on there for awhile now.”

Orr said most people in Fruitvale are aware the school has been closed for years, and no longer give it a look when passing by.

“We are asking for diligence on the public’s part to keep an eye on the place,” he said. “If you see anything suspicious or anyone on the property or near the building, let us know. Generally, no one should be there.”

Anyone with information relating to these incidents is urged to contact the Trail and Greater District RCMP at 250.364.2566 or anonymously at Crime Stoppers, 1.800.222.TIPS (8477).
