VPD releases video of mischief to Olympic Cauldron

  • VPD releases video of mischief to Olympic Cauldron

Vancouver – Vancouver Police have released security video of two people deliberately causing thousands of dollars in damage to the 2010 Olympic Cauldron this past weekend.

“The video of the two suspects destroying a piece of Vancouver Olympic history is maddening,” says VPD Constable Jason Doucette. “And now that we’ve reviewed the footage, it’s obvious this was planned and deliberate.”

Just after 3:30 a.m. on October 1, two suspects were in Jack Poole Plaza for 12 minutes, and briefly approached the base of the cauldron before leaving. When they returned 30 minutes later, one approached the base of the cauldron with a tool, while the other appeared to pull out a camera to record the destruction.

“These two will likely use the video for some sort of bragging rights, and when they do, we hope their friends will do the right thing and call police,” adds Constable Doucette.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the VPD or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
