RCMP are still at a loss as to who vandalized the public washrooms near the Nakusp marina and gazebo on July 23.

Early in the morning, one or more persons broke a toilet and a mirror, and that same night a piece of “monitoring equipment” at the lift station on 8th Ave. was damaged as well.

“We have not been able identify any suspects to date,” confirmed Corporal Ryan Fehler of the Nakusp RCMP, who also added that they don’t know if damage was done by locals or not.

Fehler declined to give specifics about the monitoring equipment.

“I didn’t want to get into the specifics of the items damaged and associated costs, [or] to discuss the accessibility and value of certain specific items,” he said.

Fehler did say the cost to repair the damaged property is estimated at over $2,000.

Anyone with information regarding these offences is urged to contact the Nakusp RCMP at 250-265-3677.
