File # 2020-8708

On December 18, 2020 at approximately 7:30 pm, multiple vehicles were struck by large rocks thrown by a male in the 5400 block of Matukwum Lane and Sunshine Coast Highway in Sechelt. A 49 year old Sechelt male was arrested by police and will be facing charges of Mischief over $5000.

"Thankfully the drivers of these vehicles were able to steer to safety and did not collide with any other cars. It was dark out and this is a busy section of the highway, there could have been tragic consequences" said Cst. Karen Whitby.

Police have spoken to three people whose cars where damaged that night. If anyone else was victimized or has information, please call the RCMP at 604-885-2266, file 2020-8708 relates.
