Police search for Queen Charlotte vandal with gas, lighter

  • Sep. 12, 2008 8:00 p.m.

A man was seen with a jerry can in one hand and a lighted lighter in the other in the early morning hours of Sept. 11 in Queen Charlotte. He was outside the Hecate Inn and trying to get into a station wagon parked in front of the motel, says owner Albert Myshrall. Mr. Myshrall says his wife was awakened by the noises out the window and when she saw the man, she asked him what he was doing. “Then he took off,” Mr Myshrall told the Observer. The RCMP received a call about the incident and said another incident also took place that morning. A window was smashed in the back of a rental vehicle in front of the Premier Creek Lodging and according to Constable Andrew West at the Queen Charlotte RCMP, it was rented by Revenue Canada employees. He said patrols were made in the early morning hours, but the police have no suspects. An earlier complaint was made about an intoxicated male, but police do not know if these incidents were related. He says anyone with information about this crime should contact the police.
