BURNABY (NEWS 1130) – Two teenagers have been arrested and are facing charges after a number of tires were slashed in Burnaby this past long weekend.

Mounties say the boys, aged 14 and 15, are facing charges of mischief in relation to the incident, in which more than 100 vehicles were affected.

Police were called Monday morning to the area of 12th Ave. and Mary Ave. after people woke up and discovered their tires had been slashed overnight. Several other cars were targeted in the area of 10th Ave. and 18th St.

Investigators had released surveillance footage of two suspects they were trying to identify following the tire-slashing spree.

According to police, the boys were arrested “without incident”, and the Burnaby RCMP says it was assisted by its partners in Coquitlam and Maple Ridge.
