Vehicles were damaged in two separate — and apparently unrelated — incidents in Squamish on the weekend.
On Saturday (Sept. 14) at around 1 a.m., police responded to a report of a loud party at a home in the 1800 block of Mamquam Road, RCMP Sgt. Wayne Pride wrote in a statement.
At the scene, the party had dispersed, but five vehicles in the area had been damaged, with cracked windows and side mirrors knocked off, Pride said. One witness emailed The Chief to say a group of males appeared had ripped the mirrors off and thrown them into the windshields.
The investigation is ongoing, with police looking into report that there may have been underage drinking at the home, Pride said.
Also on Saturday, police received reports of two vehicles having been damaged while parked in the 39000 block of No Name Road in North Yards. One vehicle had a piece of asphalt thrown through its windshield, while the other had a piece of wood thrown through a rear window. Nothing was stolen as “it appears the intent was to cause damage,” Pride wrote.
On Thursday (Sept. 12) at around 3 p.m., police responded to a report of a break-and-enter in progress at a home in the 1900 block of Diamond Road in Garibaldi Estates. Two Squamish males, age 16 and 17, were arrested a short time later at a home in the same block. Police managed to recover jewelry, a camera, liquor and cash that had been stolen in the break-in.
On Saturday, police received a report that a home on Whitecap Court in Furry Creek had been broken into. The residents had been away for a week and when they returned, they noticed that someone — possibly a number of people — had broken into and ransacked the home. Those who were inside the home appeared to have been drinking and doing drugs inside the home, Pride said. Apparently, nothing was stolen.
Cyclist faces charge
On Friday (Sept. 13) at around 9 a.m., police responded to a report of a fight in progress at Cleveland Avenue and Main Street. A cyclist and motorist had become embroiled in a disagreement over right-of-way that turned physical. No serious injuries were sustained, but the cyclist, a 75-year-old Squamish man, faces a charge of assault.
