Police looking for help identifying racist graffiti suspects in Kelowna

RCMP are asking the public for help identifying six teenagers thought to be involved in spray painting racist graffiti in a Kelowna community park.

The graffiti was discovered on the morning of May 27 at the Calmels Crescent park in the Glenmore area of Kelowna.

"The area was covered in spray paint depicting racist language and symbols, male genitalia and just a general mess," a Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers media release says.

The vandalism took place at about 11:30 p.m. May 26, and investigators want help to identify a group of youths who entered a nearby convenience store at 11:40 p.m.

Anyone who may be able to identify the teenagers, or has information about the vandalism, is urged to contact Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip through our website www.crimestoppers.net, quoting File 2023-29127.

Callers will remain anonymous and could earn a cash reward.

EDITOR'S NOTE: A photo of the suspects submitted by Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers has been removed at the request of RCMP. A Crime Stoppers spokesperson said the suspects have been identified by RCMP.
