Last Wednesday night or early Thursday morning someone vandalized/sabotaged a concrete septic tank that was left on the side of Barcello Road waiting to be installed this week in Cawston.
“The culprit cut off the lifting rings on our tank, which are used to move the tanks around. It was no small task to cut through six pieces of 1/2” rebar and speculation is that a battery-operated saws-all was used,” commented Eric Pierce of Turtle Tanks.
Police were called to make a report and take pictures of the damage.
People are asked to contact the local RCMP station with any information that may help to catch the perpetrator.
A one thousand dollar reward has been offered by Turtle Tanks.
“Luckily, because our tanks are constructed differently than standard tanks we were able to work around the problem, something that would have been near impossible had it been done to a standard rectangular concrete septic tank which weighs considerably more and has to be moved with a crane. The attempted sabotage shows us that we must be doing something right for someone to go through the effort to disrupt our business,” Pierce added
