One or more trigger-happy gunslingers attacked a rock crusher off Tagish Road in mid-July.
Between July 14 and July 17, someone entered a gravel pit near the Taku subdivision and fired 50 shots with a .22-calibre rifle into the defenseless equipment.
The owner of the rock crusher called the police the afternoon of the 17th. The thick-skinned rock crusher suffered mostly superficial wounds, though RCMP did note that a $120 belt had to be replaced.
This latest attack on Yukon machinery came only two weeks after someone shot 50 bullets into two excavators and a bailer at the Marsh Lake landfill.
The Marsh Lake landfill equipment was attacked in a secured yard with a .22-calibre rifle and a shotgun overnight between June 30th and Canada Day.
The equipment was damaged to the tune of $6,000.
Anyone with any information on this vandalism is encouraged to call the national Crime Stoppers tips line at 1-800-222-8477.
Your tip will remain anonymous, and you may be eligible to receive a cash award of up to $2,000.
