The end of September saw a few different cases of mischief in Weyburn. However, there were a few reports that were a rare occurrence here in Weyburn.

"On September 30th, we received a few complaints from residents in the Dieppe Drive area of the city, that involved windshield wipers physically being ripped and removed from vehicles that were parked on the street," says Inspector Rod Stafford with the Weyburn Police Service.

There is a significant amount of damage related to this type of mischief, causing the vehicle owners money and time.

"The physical ripping of windshield wipers from a vehicle is not one of those common types of mischief that we see so we're a bit perplexed by it, but we have absolutely no leads and we're just asking for the publics assistance again anybody who may have seen anything or heard anything even in terms of the time to contact the Weyburn Police Service directly."

These acts are considered criminal mischief with charges to be laid on those responsible.

If you have any information regarding these events please contact WPS at 306-848-3250 or anonymously at Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
