Vandal hits Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery downtown

Okanagan Spirits

Police say a 15 year old kid broke into the Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery on Bernard early Tuesday morning and basically trashed the place.

Owner Tyler Dyck says the whole episode was caught on surveillance camera.

"And it looks like some kid just wanted to have some fun. So, according to the police, I think he's quite well known to them.  It gets to the core when there's no social responsiblity. If there's no recourse to anything you're just going to keep on being that badass kid that you are. He broke in and in the end it's about 22,500 dollars damage."

Dyck says with all the issues downtown, he is considering a move to another part of the city.

He says the issues on the street outside the distillery are now happening both day and night.
