Prince George, B.C. – Local police would like to catch up with the people responsible for acts of mischief which have taken place near University Hospital of Northern BC over the past six months.

Cpl Craig Douglass says that in the last half-year police have received three reports of nails being distributed along streets in the vicinity of the hospital.  The incidents are being viewed as deliberate acts of mischief and police are looking for information from the public to help nail the culprit(s)..

The first report was on October 21st, 2014 when it was found that nails had been strategically placed close to vehicles parked near the intersection of 11th Avenue and Laurier Crescent.  The investigation found a previous history of nails being left along Edmonton Street from 10th to 13th Avenues.

A second report on November 12th last year indicated that nails had been found in close proximity to vehicles in the area of Edmonton Street, Laurier Crescent and both 11th & 12th Avenues.

Then on the morning of March 31st, 2015, the RCMP received another report of nails placed near the corner of 11th Avenue and Edmonton Street.   About 20 nails were removed from the street.

Cpl. Douglass says that several motorists wound up with flat tires as a result of these incidents.

If you have any information about the people responsible you’re asked to call the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477, online at www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca (English only), or Text-A-Tip to CRIMES (274637) using keyword “pgtips”.


Gee video cameras would really help huh….

Is parking on the streets becoming a problem for someone?

One of my uncles lived next to a park once and had his windows getting broke by a rock throwing kid on a regular basis. One night it happened again and he was ready for it and chased the kid down with a golf club… Turns out the kids dad owned one of the local glass franchises. So uncle needed a new windshield for a fork lift where he works, and was able to get the owner to show up for a quote, where he cornered him and hence forth the broken windows stopped.

Makes one wonder if a tire shop owner has kids in the neighbourhood?

Eagleone is repeating urban legends ..making them his own story now..

And you PG101 are an expert in reading between the lines?

I’d be looking at the nutbars waving their signs around the hospital everyday.

I think it is probably some of the residents there that don’t like people parking in front of their house. Some people have the mistaken impression that they own the city street in front of their property.
