West Shore RCMP have arrested two suspects who burned their names into the toilet seats in Centennial Park on Thursday.

On September 1st, RCMP were called to Centennial Park near the 2800 block of Carlow Road, to check on the well-being of two individuals laying on the ground near the tennis courts. 

According to officers, a bystander had witnessed them ingesting drugs in the public bathroom at the park and was concerned for their wellbeing.

Officers located the 40-year-old man and the 31-year-old woman, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs but were not in medical distress. 

A search of the bathroom revealed the names of the man and woman were burned into a toilet seat. 

Both suspects were arrested by police for mischief under $5000, however, the man admitted to vandalizing the property on his own. 

He was released with conditions to not attend the park and to court on October 13th. 

The woman was released without charges.

“We take vandalism seriously as it effects the enjoyment of all park goers,” said Cpl. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Relations Officer.

“The bystander’s quick call to the police, along with our prompt response meant that we were able to locate the suspects. We want to thank the bystander for calling us right away.”
