Kelowna RCMP is asking the public’s help to identify these three suspects who continue to vandalize our community.

SOCIAL has tagged numerous public and private properties throughout Kelowna.

These types of crimes are often discounted by the public as nuisance issues, says Cpl Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP. But the reality is this isn’t a victimless crime. Vandalism such as this takes away from the beauty of our city, and it encourages other criminal behaviour.

Anyone with any information about this crime can contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. Or remain completely anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by leaving a tip online at
