Cemetery fencing mowed down

Vandals mowed down fencing at the Greenwood Cemetery on Josephine Road twice in one week.

Vandals have struck the Greenwood Cemetery on Josephine Road.

The incident occurred two weeks ago, Parks and Recreation’s Jake Colyn said.

Parks and rec staff found a section of fence at the corner of Josephine Street damaged.

“It looks like someone hit the fence while they were doing doughnuts,” Colyn said.

The fence was repaired and staff considered the incident a one-off.

But workers were alerted to more damage two days later.

“Someone drove what was probably a four-wheel drive into that same section of fence and knocked it over,” Colyn said.

The damage cost the city more than $1,000 to repair, he added.

The incident has been reported to police.

No one has called parks and rec to say they saw what happened though, Colyn said.

The vandalism was kept to the periphery of the grave yard.

The inside of the cemetery which includes the Field of Honour was left alone, he said. The cemetery is for the most part left alone.

The property had been vandalized over the years but fencing was put up and areas cleared to create highly visible sight lines, Colyn said.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the Port Alberni RCMP detachment at 250-723-2424, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
