The Surrey RCMP are renewing a call for the public’s help in identifying two suspects who allegedly vandalized a local temple last month.

At about midnight on June 23, Mounties responded to a mischief call at the Vedic Hindu Temple near 83 Street and 140 Street. Once there, they saw that the entrance windows had been smashed and a baseball bat was left at the scene.

Surveillance video shows two males, both carrying bats or batons, walking out of a treed area toward the temple. One man is wearing a hoodie with the hood up and shorts, while the other is wearing a light-coloured baseball cap.

“At this point in our investigation, we do not have any evidence to suggest that this is anything more than an act of public mischief,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “That being said we certainly understand and appreciate the concerns of the community and are not ruling out any possibilities until our investigation is complete.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS to remain anonymous.
