The average cost to repair each vehicle is estimated to be around $2,000 and the total repair cost will be approximately $100,000.

Police have extensively viewed the footage of various security cameras and have identified a person of interest, said Cpl. Richard De Jong, of the North Vancouver RCMP. We need this person identified and spoken to.

  • A caucasian male
  • Between 50 to 60 years old
  • Heavier set and balding
  • At the time of the incident, he was wearing a yellow shirt, green shorts, black watch and black boots
