Police charge two in vandalism

  • September 30, 2021

VANCOUVER -- Two women have been charged by Vancouver Police following an investigation into vandalism this summer at St. Jude’s Church in East Vancouver.

On July 1, St. Jude’s was vandalized by two women who threw orange paint on exterior doors and walls. The incident was filmed, apparently by one of the perpertrators, and the parish posted a copy on its Facebook page asking for help in identifying the women.

B.C. Prosecution Service has approved one count of  mischief under $5,000 against each of the women, who have not been identified.

The case was one of 13 incidents of vandalism that occurred at religious properties in Vancouver between June 2 and July 20.
