On Dec. 5, Sunshine Coast RCMP reported:
Teens lacking in Christmas spirit commit mischief.
Just after midnight on Dec. 3, six teens were caught on security video damaging a large Christmas decoration at the Gibsons Marina in the 600 block of Prowse Road, Gibsons. The teens are seen exiting a Mazda 6, taking photos of themselves and trying to pull down the approximately 20-foot-tall Christmas tree that is made out of Christmas lights. A number of the light strings were pulled down and many of the bulbs were broken on the ground. The teens are then seen getting back into the four-door silver or grey Mazda 6 that is described as having a sunroof, spoiler, an “N” on the back and possibly after-market rims. Police are attempting to identify the teens. Anyone with any information about this mischief is asked to contact RCMP, reference file 2017-8049.
And then on Dec. 7:
Christmas lights back on again.
Sunshine Coast RCMP are pleased to report that all the youths involved in the mischief to the Christmas lights at Gibson’s Marina have been identified.
The youths have come forward and are working together with the complainant to resolve the issue and take responsibility.
