For the third time this year, the Skeena Valley Golf Course has been the victim of vandalism again.

On Saturday night, May 13, sometime between midnight and 6 AM, a table and chairs were thrown over a bank and smashed up. The other incident of the same nature occurred during the night of June 30, May 1 st. The first incident was unreported. Damages are in excess of $1000.

If anybody has information that can assist the Terrace RCMP in identifying the vandals, call us or Crime Stoppers, “ says Cst Angela Rabut, Terrace RCMP Community Policing / Media Relations Officer.

If you have information about this crime contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800 222-TIPS. Or a Tip can be left anonymously online at www.bccrimestoppers.com
Might be time...
Comment by MaggieJo Johnson on 18th May 2012
If not done so already, 'might be time to put in some security recording devices around the golf course and promptly advertise so in signage form.

The Golf Course owners might also approach neighboring residents to keep an eye out for suspicous vehicles after hours to log their license plates. A neighbor's video recording of suspicous vehicles would be a plus too. An incentive to have the neighbors "on alert" might be a free golf course lunch or dinner when information is produced. In any event, the neighbors will at least retain the mere satisfaction that they are tending to their own neighborhoods, including their own homes when thugs are vandalizing directly around them.

Nofin' wrong with claiming back our own neighborhoods, heh?
REAL EASY SOLUTION
Comment by MS on 18th May 2012
I have a really easy solution to this problem, at closing bring your tables and chairs in. When you open put them back out. The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results...aka leaving everything out after the first 2 times and expecting it not to happen again
