Port Alberni RCMP are on the hunt for vandals who smashed the windows of 10 vehicles owned by fishing derby participants.

Police responded to a call of vehicles damaged in the parking lot behind Solda’s Restaurant just after 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, Cpl. Jen Allan said.

Police found 10 vehicles with one window smashed each, Allan said. The vehicles were parked along the backside of the parking lot furthest away from Beaver Creek Road. The area is dark with no lighting at night.

The owners of the damaged vehicles were all participants in a fishing derby that was held over the weekend, Allan said. The area is used as overflow parking for Clutesi Haven Marina. Police don’t yet know if any of the vehicles were entered and robbed.

Cursory inquiries have been made in the neighbourhood but there are no leads, Allan said.

Police are asking anyone who has any information about this incident to call the RCMP at 250-723-2424 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
