Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crimes:

During the month of September, an unknown person or persons have been vandalizing the gas tanks of vehicles parked in Port Alberni.
The owner of a green GMC pickup truck had parked his vehicle at the marina parking lot located near 1st Ave and Kingsway Ave. Sometime over the 2 weeks it was parked there, an unknown suspect or suspects crawled under the truck and punctured the gas tank causing the fuel to pour out. It appears the suspect collected the fuel as it emptied from the tank.
Sometime between Tuesday September 19th at 4 pm and Wednesday September 20th at 11:30 am, an unknown suspect or suspects crawled under a white Dodge Dakota pickup truck parked at the health unit in the 4200 block of 6th Ave. The suspect or suspects drilled several holes into the gas tank of the truck causing all the fuel to pour out. Again, it appears the fuel was collected.
