RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance following vandalism at Vernon Teach and Learn on 30th Avenue Sunday evening.

Vernon RCMP are investigating vandalism at a downtown business.

On Sunday at about 9 p.m., four people went to the front of Vernon Teach and Learn on 30th Avenue.

“They caused extensive damage to the holiday displays the store had put up, as well as the lighting on the front of the store and the roof,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the RCMP.

“Store video surveillance shows two males and two females, who all appear to be youths, causing the damage. One of the males had a distinctive striped bag slung across his chest.”

Vernon Teach and Learn owner Lynella Henke says this isn’t the first incident at the store.

“It’s our third time this fall we’ve been hit,” she said.

The latest act of vandalism was particularly discouraging due to the amount of time and effort put into the display.

“It’s something that the girls spent hours doing.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers.
