Traffic light shot out in Fort St. John

The Fort St. John RCMP detachment is trying to figure out who is reponsible for potentially dangerous gunplay.

On June 26th, a traffic light was shot-out using a small caliber pistol or rifle. The light faces the northbound centre traffic lane on Highway 97 at the 269 Road.

Police are saying this practice is dangerous to the public because it can cause a collision at the intersection. Officers are also saying that there is concern for the safety of those who live close to the area where the shots were fired.

The cost of the traffic lights runs into the thousands of dollars to replace.

If anyone has any information regarding this or any other intentional traffic light damages contact the Fort St. John RCMP at 250-787-8100.

If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. A two thousand dollar reward is being offered for information which leads to an arrest and charge.
