A Sicamous youth is facing charges after a pair of vehicles were seriously damaged in the early hours of March 17.
According to a statement from the RCMP, officers were called to to Elliott Crescent at 3:30 a.m. March 17 for a report of a male voice yelling and breaking the pre-dawn peace.
Multiple calls were received about the disturbance and one of the callers reported seeing an unknown man slashing the tires of a vehicle parked in a driveway. The person who slashed the tires left the scene on foot before police arrived.
Two vehicles parked in a house’s driveway had all four of their tires slashed and one of them had its paint scratched. The resident of the house was unsure of the vandal’s identity.
According to Sicamous RCMP, their investigation led them to arrest a 16-year-old. The youth was charged with mischief under $5,000 and then released with a court date scheduled for May in Salmon Arm.
