File # 2021-4935

On December 2, 2021 the Smithers RCMP was made aware of some offensive vandalism that was located on a billboard sign.

The sign located just outside Smithers was spray painted with a swastika rented by a politician and MLA for the Stikine area of BC. The vandalism is believed to have occurred between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

The spray paint use on the sign is a distinctive light blue colour, and might be recognizable to someone said Sergeant Chris Manseau, BC RCMP media relations officer.

The owner of the billboard has been made aware of the vandalism.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed or captured dash cam footage of the crime, or has information which could help to further the investigation, to please contact the Smithers RCMP at (250) 847-3233.
