Bullet-peppered van found Friday morning on west Mount Sicker Road
A bullet-riddled van found early Friday morning is being investigated by police.
Resident Charles Lukas said he happened by the red, late-model Ford Windstar along west Mount Sicker Road at about 8:30 a.m.
North Cowichan/Duncan Const. D. M. de Montbrun was already on scene examining the van that had back-end and window damage — and had been peppered by what's believed to have been shotgun and rifle blasts.
A box of shells was also left at the scene.
"What concerned the officer was the callous use of a firearm in a semi-rural, populated area. They brought the vehicle there and shot it up very well."
De Montbrun also noted to Lukas the van may have been stolen from a dealership, and a key was believed to have been used to gain entry.
The RCMP failed to return requests for details about this case by press time Saturday.
Folks who saw or heard anything related to this crime, that may have happened Halloween night, can call the local police at 250-748-5522.
