Walter and Carol Krysiak, along with other Bow Island residents were disheartened when they got home on the evening of Oct. 26 and found vandals had destroyed a number of their inflatable Halloween decorations.
For the Krysiak’s, having a well-decorated yard for Halloween is a delight and part of a tradition, especially when they can see the happy faces of the young trick-or-treaters, who get their pictures taken in front of the decorations and send thank-you cards to the Krysiaks afterward.
“I’m frustrated. We try to have some fun here for the little ones,” said Walter Krysiak, who had between $700-$800 worth of damage at his property. There was similar damage done at other residences in town.
According to a Bow Island RCMP press release, a number of inflatable Halloween decorations were slashed at multiple locations in Bow Island during the evening of Oct. 26, causing approximately $800 worth of damage.
The RCMP detachment were dispatched to call regarding the damaged Halloween decorations at approximately 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening.
Anybody who has information regarding the individuals responsible or has other information to contribute can contact the Bow Island detachment at 403-545-2784 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS.
As of press time on Monday, there were no further updates on the investigation.
