Kyle said the RCPD believes these reports are connected.

Police have received one report of juveniles in the area where one of the incidents occurred, but no arrests have been made.

Three other incidents of criminal damage to vehicles have been reported, but because of the nature of the damage - one was a damaged mirror, one was a keying of a vehicle, and one had the wires cut on the vehicle - police don’t believe they are related.
