Mounties are looking for two teenagers believed to be responsible for vandalizing at least 17 vehicles early Sunday along the downtown Penticton waterfront.

Penticton RCMP were called out at 5:30 a.m. to a report of two males on BMX bikes damaging vehicles in the parkade at the Lakeside Resort, along Lakeshore Drive, and at the Penticton Marina, according to a press release issued this week.

Damage inflicted on the vehicles included scratched paint and slashed tires.

Witnesses reported one male was wearing a black hoodie, while the other was wearing a plaid hoodie and carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information about the matter is asked to call Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
