Kamloops RCMP received a further report on Wednesday, Feb. 12, that a suspected graffiti tagger has struck again, hitting many locations at Sun Peaks overnight.

The suspected tagger uses the handle of GLITCH or GLITTER.
Police are again urging anyone with information to contact the Tk’emlups Rural RCMP on 250-314-1800.

Tk’emlups Rural RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance as they try to identify a suspect who has been spray painting signs, posts and electrical boxes throughout Sun Peaks.
To date, over 25 incidences of vandalism have been reported in Sun Peaks, all taking place in early February. The RCMP has also engaged the services of the Kamloops Graffiti Task Forces to assist in identifying potential suspects responsible for the damage.
RCMP Senior Sergeant Doug Aird said the incidents were not only eyesores, but cost Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality considerable time, resources and money to clean up.
