Smithers RCMP investigate downtown fires, graffiti

Smithers RCMP are trying to find out who’s behind a number of recent downtown fires.

Police say someone started three fires in cardboard waste management bins last Thursday, April 2nd.

All three bins were located along Main Street and the fires were set sometime after 1:30 in the morning.

The fires aren’t the only issue facing the downtown area.

RCMP have also noticed an increase in graffiti to a number of buildings.

Mounties say the back alley locations of several businesses were spray-painted late last month.

Investigators say similar graffiti has been seen in other areas of Smithers and Telkwa.

Anyone with information about the fires or graffiti should contact Smithers RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
