RCMP are seeking the public’s help following a break-in and vandalism at the idle Springer Creek Forest Products mill in Slocan.

Police say it occurred sometime between April 9 and 12.

“It appeared the perpetrators entered the building at several access doors and, in doing so, damaged the doors and doorjambs,” says Slocan Lake Const. Shaun Foley.

The suspects spray painted graffiti on several walls, doors, and tables, as well as exterior walls. Several fire extinguishers were taken from inside and discharged throughout the site.

Foley says while it’s difficult to determine the extent of the damage, it’s estimated to be more than $1,000.

The mill has been idle for close to a year.
