Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crime:

Over the last month, unknown suspects have been vandalizing local landscaping and stealing the plants.

The City of Port Alberni has been the victim of several incidents of vandalism and theft. Several beds and planters in the city have had the flowers and plants uprooted; in some instances the
planters have been stripped clean of all plants and their root systems. Upper 3rd Ave and Harbour Quay were two of the targeted areas.

Sometime in the overnight hours of Saturday, May 9th, an unknown suspect or suspects targeted the recently landscaped property of San Group, at the corner of Stamp Ave and Roger St. Hundreds of dollars worth of plants were uprooted and stolen.

This type of vandalism has also occurred in other areas of Port Alberni. It is clearly intentional and has a financial impact to the city, businesses and all others targeted. Further, it affects the
beautification improvements that were made to the area.
