Drumheller RCMP are trying to solve a couple of recent cases of vandalism, including to one of their own.
 
Several days ago, someone knocked over the sign in McConkey Park at the west end of 3 Avenue South and broke it in two.
 
"One of the neighbors did have some surveillance (video), but unfortunately it's just not of sufficient quality to identify somebody; all we can say is there's two suspects," reported Constable Rachel Pergunas. "The problem is these things are usually somebody on their way by and thinks they're being funny or just wants to be destructive to be destructive."
 
Around the same time, someone vandalised a couple of RCMP cruisers that were in town for the day.
 
"We had some training in town where we had RCMP officers from other jurisdictions come to town specifically to receive some training from one of our officers here," explained Pergunas. "They went for a nice lunch after their training and came out to a couple of PC (police cruiser) tires having been slashed."
 
A total of three tires on two vehicles were slashed with what appeared to have been a knife.
 
"It was in a public parking lot in the middle of the day, so it would be nice to know if somebody maybe saw somebody in the area acting suspiciously around the police vehicles," she concluded.
 
If you know anything about either incident and can help identify those responsible call the Drumheller RCMP detachment at 403-823-7590 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
