Queens District RCMP continues to investigate mischief at the Liverpool tourist bureau.
On January 9, Queens District RCMP responded to a report of vandalism at the tourist bureau in Liverpool. RCMP officers learned someone, between the evening of January 8 and early morning hours of January 9, had vandalized the building with various forms of graffiti.
A photo of a person believed to be involved in the incident was released to the public in the hopes of identifying them.
Investigators have since learned that, later that morning, on January 9 a dark-coloured sedan bearing Ontario license plates parked at the tourist bureau. The driver exited the vehicle and met with another man who approached on foot. A discussion ensued, and the duo expressed the same hateful language that had been spray painted on the tourist bureau.
The driver of the vehicle is described as being in his early 20s with dark hair.
The man who was on foot had a beard.
As the investigation continues, investigators are conscious that this act of mischief is consistent with being motivated by bias, prejudice or hate against an identifiable group.
Anyone with information, or dash camera footage of the area on January 10, is asked to contact the Queens District RCMP at 902-354-5721. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca, or use the P3 Tips App.
