The Terrace RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying those who vandalized a boarded-up building on the 4700 block of Keith Ave.

Damage to the building, located just west of the Sande Overpass and which has been vacant for several years, is more than several thousand dollars.

“Senselsess acts of vandalism like this hurt the entire community. It does not give a proper representation of the great community Terrace is. It hurts our local businesses and these expenses eventually fall to the consumer,” said Terrace RCMP Constable Angela Rabut today.

“As a community we cannot tolerate this type of behavior and need to hold those responsible accountable.”

The incident was reported to police on May 14. The southwest exterior wall was ripped off and insulation was pulled out. A fence adjoining the property was also knocked over. The exact time frame of the incident could not be determined.

People with information on this crime are asked to contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca or by texting TERRACE plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES).

If your information leads to an arrest you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2000.
