A Brocklehurst resident discovered strange graffiti on the side of their house last week, with the vandalism referencing police.
Photos of the tagging shared on Facebook show large black letters referencing an alleged corrupt police officer — “Cst. John Chung” — along with the local detachment’s phone number spray painted on the Crestline Avenue home.
The post goes on to state an RCMP officer responded and photographed the graffiti.
RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said there is no police officer by the name of John Chung working at the Kamloops detachment, but she did not know if another officer by that names works at another detachment.
The graffiti just days after police reported a vandalism spree in the area, in which a number of vehicles were damaged.
Staff Sgt. Edward Preto said about 10 vehicles parked on Fleetwood Avenue, Crestline Street and Schreiner Street in Brocklehurst were targeted overnight on Wednesday, Jan. 1, with tires flattened and paint scratched.
