Burnaby RCMP is asking for the public's help in finding those responsible for a series of incidents of tire vandalism over the last few weeks.

Between Dec. 2 and 8, in the late night and early morning hours, damage was done to multiple vehicles parked on streets and parking lots. The cases appear to be random and took place in five separate areas of Burnaby.

Similar incidents have taken place throughout the year at various locations in the city, with about 249 vehicles to date having their tires slashed or punctured. The value of the damage caused has exceeded $200,000.

It is possible the same person or persons is responsible in all the incidents, say Burnaby RCMP.

Anyone who has been a victim of such incidents or who has information about those responsible is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
