Tourist’s tires slashed near Poole’s Land

A man who had been booted from the campground spent the night nearby and awoke to find his tires had been slashed.

A man who had been booted from Poole’s Land had his tires slashed when he returned to the area.

The incident was reported on Aug. 4 and is believed to have occurred overnight.

The man spent several nights at Poole’s Land before being asked to leave the campground, according to Sgt. Blain Mumford of the Tofino RCMP.

Mumford told the Westerly the man returned to the area a few days after being kicked out and spent the night near the campground before awaking to find his vehicle’s four tires had been cut open on MacKenzie Beach Road.

Police have no suspects, or witnesses to the crime, but Mumford encourages anyone with any information to contact the Tofino RCMP at 250-725-3242.

“The person who had his tires slashed believed that it was in relation to his dispute with some people at Poole’s Land, although we haven’t been able to gather any evidence to suggest that at this time,” Mumford said.
