Fishing line strung up across Langford roads

West Shore RCMP treating cases as intentional mischief

West Shore RCMP are looking for those responsible for stringing fishing line across two Langford roads.

Police responded to two calls June 29 of vehicles driving through fishing line strung across the streets.

The near-invisible lines were intentionally strung across Hull Road at Jenkins Avenue, and near the roundabout on Glen Lake Road at Alouette Drive, said West Shore RCMP Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz.

“It is fortunate that no one was injured by this, as the fishing line was strung at a height that would impact a person riding a bike,” she said.

Anyone with information on either case is asked to call RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).”
