Ucluelet police are investigating the recent destruction of six picnic tables at Lost Shoe Campground.

Campground owner Glen Kaikkonen discovered the tables in pieces on March 13 and believes the vandalism occurred on March 11 or 12.

“Somebody went out there and destroyed six of my picnic tables,” he said.

“They drove to the back and purposefully destroyed these picnic tables with a truck or a car.”

Const. Matthew Crist of the Ucluelet RCMP confirmed that police believe a vehicle was likely used to damage the tables intentionally and an investigation is ongoing.

He said the tables were worth roughly $500 each; meaning about $3,000 of damage was done.
