Police are investigating death threats made towards West Vancouver mayor and council.
Officers responded to reports of graffiti at 1552 Esquimalt Avenue at about 9 a.m. Wednesday, West Vancouver police said in a news release Thursday. There, they found three large information boards for proposed apartment buildings defaced with spray paint reading “Kill Booth” and “Kill Council” in large letters.
The vandalized signs were removed immediately.
“This is very concerning for us,” Const. Kevin Goodmurphy said. “We take all reports of threats seriously, and an investigation has been launched in an effort to identify any suspects.”
Police believe the graffiti was made between Tuesday at 3 p.m. and Wednesday at 7 a.m.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 604-925-7300 or Crime Stoppers if they wish to remain anonymous.
