Police are on the hunt for a pair of suspects thought to have slashed the tires of about 105 vehicles on Monday morning.
Burnaby RCMP responded to multiple reports that began coming in around 10 am on October 8 from residents whose tires had been slashed on and around the 7500 block of 12th Avenue. Additionally, more cars had their tires slashed around the 7100 block of 10th Avenue.
Some reports indicate that residents heard the tires being punctured around 2 am, though no one contacted police until daylight.
Burnaby RCMP are reminding members of the public to please contact police immediately should they see or hear anything suspicious in their neighbourhood.
The suspects can be seen on surveillance video. They are described as young Caucasian males, both wearing dark hooded tops.
“This vandalism has come with a great cost to the affected residents,” says Staff Sergeant Major John Buis in a media release. “The sheer quantity of vehicles involved is shocking and today we want the public to take good look at the images we’re releasing and to contact us if they recognize the suspects.”
Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
