Early Sunday morning vandals went on a stop sign ramming-spree in Metchosin.

Early Sunday morning vandals went on a stop sign ramming-spree in Metchosin.

Around 4 a.m. on July 10, seven stop signs were intentionally hit with a vehicle.

“The vehicle rammed into them, knocked them down and dragged some of them,” said Rachel Parker, Metchosin’s municipal clerk.

All the signs were damaged beyond repair and were replaced, totaling $3,000 for the materials and staff time. District public works staff worked overtime on Monday evening installing new signs due to safety concerns.

“This is pretty bad for a small place like Metchosin,” Parker said.

The incidents have been reported to West Shore RCMP. If anyone saw anything unusual or has any information on the case can call the detachment at 250-474-2264.
