Lanark OPP are asking residents to report any vandalism after a Pride flag was sprayed with black paint.
Const. Joe Tereschuk said the damage to the flag at a private residence in Carleton Place was “graffiti” and no words or symbols were used. The incident occurred over the last few days.
However, police would like to know if similar incidents have not been reported.
“This is a request to keep an eye on suspicious activity,” said Tereschuk. “We’re hoping that this was an isolated incident. If there are unreported incidents, we want to know about it.”
Those with information are asked to call 1-888-310-1122 or 1-800-222-8477.
