THUNDER BAY – CRIME – The ugly head of apparent racism has shown up in the Northwood Ward. Three vehicles on Ashland Place were vandalized.

The Thunder Bay Police Service report that the service has had three complainants from citizens who discovered that their vehicles had been spray painted on Thursday morning on Ashland Place.

The damage according to police in a media statement is extensive with profane and racial comments being written all over the vehicles. Some of the pictures of the vandalized vehicles were posted on social media. The messages are simply too disgusting to repost pictures.

Thunder Bay Police are encouraging any other possible victims to contact the police so they may continue to investigate the scope of this issue.

Police are also asking for the public to come forward with any information about who may be responsible for these actions and for information about suspicious people in the Ashland Place, Limbrick Street and Kensington Drive area late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

The police may be contacted at 684-1200 or anonymous tips may be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.tipsubmit.com.
