Suspect caught on video damaging Sunova Centre soccer fields

The RM of West St. Paul has provided video surveillance to RCMP of a vehicle causing damage to the West St. Paul Recreation Centre Soccer Fields Wednesday evening.

The video shows the vehicle driving onto the fields at about 10:20 pm on Aug. 29 and leaving ruts in the ground. The video also shows the vehicle licence plate.

Mayor Bruce Henley said he was saddened to learn that someone would cause such wilful damage to an area that people in this community enjoy so much.

"It’s one of those things. I can’t understand why anyone would want to damage a place that our staff work so hard to maintain so that kids and adults can have a safe and enjoyable place to enjoy sports and recreation,” Henley said.

"I’m glad that our cameras were able to catch the damage, and we’re happy to provide those images to the RCMP.”

RCMP are now investigating the matter.
