Three homes in the 4700 block of Walsh Ave. sustained thousands of dollars in damage by what appears to be a BB gun, reported Terrace RCMP April 6.

Homeowners heard loud popping noises at around midnight on the night of April 1st/2nd and again on April 2nd/3rd.

Police observed numerous holes, small dents, and a broken window that seemed to have been caused by a small calibre object like a BB gun or pellet gun.

“A safe neighbourhood is one that is engaged and watches out for each other. If you see something suspicious call your police. Preventing a crime from happening in the first place is our number one goal,” says Const. Angela Rabut, Community Policing/Media Relations Terrace RCMP.
