The downtown office of Westcorp Properties Inc. was targeted by vandals over the Easter long weekend.

Kelowna RCMP received a report of the damage on March 31 but do not have a description of the suspect.

Edmonton-based Westcorp is the developer for Kelowna's new downtown marina, and won City approval yesterday to build a controversial large-scale mixed-use development in the current site of the Hiawatha RV Park on Lakeshore Drive.  

Const. Kris Clark says the break and enter happened sometime over the Easter long weekend, and the person responsible left the office with an estimated $75,000 in damages.

“It appeared somone entered the building and disconnected water from the toilet on the third floor, causing extensive damage to the building,” he said.

Clark says police are investigating the incident.
