Cowichan Tribes band office hit by vandals
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.
