Man allegedly keys cars on BC ferry because their alarms were upsetting his dog

Delta police are investigating an incident that happened aboard a BC Ferries’ vessel last week.

Witnesses report that on July 9, a suspected vandal keyed two vehicles on the ferry that was arriving at the Tsawwassen ferry terminal.

Police spokeswoman Chris Leykauf said investigators found the two cars with fresh, key-life paint damage.

The man was then arrested on suspicion of mischief, but there’s been no immediate word on potential charges.

According to witnesses, the attack wasn’t entirely unprovoked.

Police were told that the man warned other passengers that any vehicles with activated car alarms would be keyed because the noise was upsetting his dog.

It’s been two years since BC Ferries introduced new rules that prevent passengers from staying in their vehicle with their pet during a sailing.
