NEWS RELEASE · 4th November 2010
On October 3rd 2010 and again on November 1st 2010 Terrace RCMP received complaints from residence of the bench area in Terrace that they had small explosives detonated in their mailboxes.
The remains of the explosives appear to be home made and judging from the damage they caused to the mailboxes that serious injury would result if someone were to come in contact with these explosives when they ignited.
That the suspects involved would face Mischief charges. They could also possibly face criminal negligence charges if any of the live explosives were to cause injury to anyone.
If you have any information regarding these incidents please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or the Terrace RCMP at 250-638-7400.

Seriously, charged with mischief? The RCMP and Crown need to give their heads a shake. What a joke, one would hope that putting a bomb at someone's doorstep would be seen as a little more than mischief, regardless of the size of explosive. It's a touch more serious that egging a house or spray painting a building.
