Kelowna RCMP Identifies Individuals Involved in Vandalizing Downtown Statue

Kelowna RCMP has successfully identified the four individuals believed to be responsible for damaging a downtown statue. The bronze statue, known as “The Working Man,” located at the intersection of Bernard Avenue and St. Paul Street, was knocked over and suffered significant damage in the early morning hours of August 12th.

RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Michael Gauthier confirmed that all four suspects have been identified. The police released photographs of the individuals, appealing to the public for assistance in identifying them. However, no further information about the ongoing investigation will be released at this time.

It remains unclear whether any charges have been filed against the four men involved in the incident. The RCMP expressed appreciation to both the media and the public for their valuable support in this case.

Additional details about the motive behind the act of vandalism and the extent of the damage caused to the statue have not been disclosed. It is essential for the authorities to determine the appropriate course of action based on the findings of their investigation.

Efforts to protect public art and maintain the integrity of communal spaces are of great importance for the community. Vandalizing statues or public property undermines the cultural and historical significance they hold and disrupts the overall well-being of the community.

Kelowna RCMP’s swift identification of the suspects demonstrates their commitment to upholding law and order within the city. It is hoped that through ongoing investigations, justice will be served, and incidents of this nature will be deterred in the future.
