Wilful damage was done to Cowichan Tribes band offices vandalized early Tuesday, police say.

The damage was discovered by a CoVal Security employee, who alerted North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at approximately 1:50 a.m. on July 29.

CoVal's staffer "confirmed several windows had been smashed on the buildings around the inner courtyard by the fountain. No access was gained into the buildings," says Cpl. Krista Hobday's email.

"Such senseless acts of vandalism cost the band, which in turn takes money away from worthwhile programs."

Police hope someone heard something that can lead investigators to identify the culprits.

Mounties request if you have information on this or any other crime, contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522, or alternately you may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illicit drugs, you could be eligible for a cash award.
