n Monday at around 10:30 P.M., the owner of a pickup truck returned to his vehicle parked in the Landing Sports Centre lot on Spadina Ave., to find two suspicious characters at it.

 

The pair, described as Caucasian, took off driving an older model white Honda Civic.

 

Unfortunately, the miscreants managed to puncture the tank and the fuel leaked out into the gravel.

 

Firefighters decided to let the the spill evaporate overnight and the hapless driver had the vehicle towed.

 

This is a very brain-dead and dangerous thing to do. One spark caused from hitting the gas tank could kill.

 

If you witnessed this, or have any information regarding this incident, contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
