Police are investigating what appears to be an attack on a Richmond business, where eight vehicles had their windshields smashed.
The incident happened several weeks ago at the corner of Knox Way and Valmont Way – close to No. 6 and River Roads – in the early hours of the morning.
The Richmond News received photos of the vehicles and their smashed-up windshields from someone connected to the business.
Richmond RCMP confirmed that 10 vehicles were targeted in the crime spree at around 2:30 a.m. on July 30, eight of which belonged to the same business.
According to police, the person who called in the incident said he left the premises at 9 p.m. the previous evening and returned at 8:30 a.m. the next day to discover the damage.
The RCMP reviewed video surveillance and determined that at around 2:30 a.m. on July 30, four suspects approached on foot and took items out of some bushes. The suspects then started damaging vehicles parked on the street.
The suspects then gained entry to a locked parking lot and damaged additional vehicles inside the secured lot, before leaving in the direction of Knox Way.
In addition to forensic examination, police conducted an extensive canvass of the area for additional evidence, witnesses, and video surveillance.
They are asking anyone who may have information regarding the incident to contact Richmond RCMP at 604-278-121 and quote file number 2023-23867.
