Smithers RCMP is asking for the public’s help in their investigation of graffiti vandalism.
The graffiti included the predominant tag “NFG.”
This this was the first of many
tags to follow in the town of Smithers and the surrounding area.
To date, this graffiti has damaged 8 business, 2 business vehicles, multiple city dumpsters, the Smithers Golf Course, Riverside campground, Bluff Mountain bike trails, Bulkley River bridge, Telkwa River bridge, a bridge along Telkwa River Rd, the Telkwa Hankin Road underpass, and the new cross country ski trail underpass on Hudson Bay Mountain Road.
Currently Smithers RCMP are investigating 13 files associated to the exact same tags; “NFG”, “NISK” “NOKS” and “ELKS”.
On June 2, the police arrested a 23 year old in relation to these offences.
He was released on a promise to appear.
Police don’t believe that this man was acting alone and are requesting anyone with information to come forward.
If you have any information that could assist in their investigation, please contact the Smithers RCMP at 250-847-3233 or Crimstoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
