North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP say willful damage to Cowichan Tribes Band Offices occurred overnight and was discovered by a Coval Security Employee.

They add he alerted the police at approximately 1:47 AM in the wee hours of Tuesday morning who then confirmed that several windows had been smashed on the buildings around the inner courtyard by the fountain.

Police say no access was gained into the buildings and they are hoping someone has heard something that can lead the investigators in identifying those responsible.
