RCMP want help to find out who drove over 11 signs in the Slocan Valley.

Nelson RCMP are asking for the public’s help to find whoever damaged several signs on Highway 6 between Crescent Valley and Slocan Park.

It happened overnight March 22-23 but police only issued a news release Thursday. They say someone drove their vehicle into the ditches and over 11 highway signs, causing $4,100 in damages.

“It is lucky no one was injured during this incident, as the tire marks go quite a way off the road in order to strike these signs,” Cst. Michael Stefani said.

“Damages such as this cost the whole community. There are several residential properties along this stretch of road which could have been affected by this erratic and reckless driving behaviour.”

Most of the signs belonged to the Ministry of Transportation, but some private signs were also damaged.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Cst. Colleen Lowing at the Nelson RCMP at 250-352-2156 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
