Nelson RCMP are on the look out for the driver of a “recognizable sounding” vehicle.

On October 20 at approximately 3:30 p.m., police were called to to a report of a vehicle causing mischief to private property in the Krestova area west of Gage Road.

This has been an ongoing issue over the past summer and a witness believes that the vehicle is from the Krestova area as it has a recognizable sounding engine — probably due to not having a muffler.

There was damage to some trees by the vehicle on the property which could result in a Criminal Code charge of Mischief to the person or persons responsible if convicted and other possible Motor Vehicle Act fines.

The RCMP are asking for anyone with information regarding this event to call the RCMP at 250-352-215 or call Crimestoppers.
