The Bergers moved into their residence on Ninth Avenue on Friday, December 9. They awoke the next morning to find that an individual, or individuals had thrown a couple of rocks at the two vehicles sitting in their driveway.
Two significant dents were found on each vehicle, resulting in hundreds of dollars worth of damage to the two cars.
“It’s a bit disappointing,” Barry Berger said of the incident, which was reported to the police.
“We moved here to retire, thinking it was a nice “sleepy hollow.” The first night here, this happens.”
It’s not known if any other nearby residences were affected by vandalism on the same night, with no one reporting anything so far.
Police also arrested a 19 year old Hedley male following an investigation of a vandalism complaint at SESS school. The school’s soccer field was subjected to at least $4,000 damage last weekend after a vehicle was driven around the field, tearing up the grass and knocking over a soccer goal post.
