Officers soon found more slashed tires on vehicles around the 7100 block of 10th Avenue. 

RCMP then learned some residents in the 7100 block of 10th Avenue had heard tires being punctured at around 2 a.m. on Monday morning but didn’t report it to police.

Police are now looking for two suspects, both described as young Caucasian males wearing dark hooded tops.

“This vandalism has come with a great cost to these residents,” Staff Sgt. Maj. John Buis stated in a press release. “The sheer quantity of vehicles involved is shocking, so today we want the public to take a good look at the images we’re releasing and to contact us if they recognize the suspects.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
