The Regina Police Service continues to investigate incidents of mischief involving damage to Regina Transit bus shelters throughout the city. This is wanton destruction of City property which serves an important function for Regina residents. The damage to bus shelters costs everyone in terms of tax dollars and creates inconvenience and discomfort to users of the transit system. The sight of broken glass can also be distressing to transit clients who may interpret the damage as a signal that the area is unsafe. We all have a role in community safety, and police are encouraging anyone who sees suspicious behavior around bus shelters to report it immediately to police.
Since the start of 2021, there have been 45 incidents of Mischief at bus shelters all over the city. There is a map accompanying this news release which shows the locations of these incidents. Although there is no evidence that points directly to a single suspect or group of suspects, the reports show that there are clusters of incidents on the same date(s) in various neighbourhoods around the city.
Anyone who has information that could assist police in these investigations is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500, or call Regina Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). If anyone sees a person or persons behaving in a suspicious manner, call police. For any crime in progress, call 9-1-1. The Regina Police Service thanks the public and the media for their assistance on this matter.
