Kingston Police have released the above and following images, and are asking for public assistance to identify the person picture, the suspect in a mischief case involving vandalism at a local conservation area.

According to police, “numerous acts of vandalism” have occurred throughout April and June this year at the Lemoine Point Conservation Area off of Coverdale Drive in Kingston’s west end.

“During this period of time approximately 30 benches have been damaged along with washroom doors and various other signage on the property,” Kingston Police said in a press release on Tuesday, Jun. 13, 2023.

“Conservation area enthusiasts have been both outraged and dismayed over the fact that many of the benches that have been vandalized are memorial benches that have small plaques with names inscribed on them. The damage to the benches, washroom doors, and signage on the property has amounted to approximately $5,000.”

Police said that security footage from the property in early June shows that the suspect believed to be behind the acts of vandalism “generally appears in the area in the late morning hours.” The vandalism has involved various political statements, such as “Traitor Trudeau” and “China Mole Justin.”

Police described the suspect as a Caucasian male with a slim-to-medium build and short brown hair. On one of the dates that the suspect attended the conservation area, he was wearing a blue bicycle helmet with a small rear-view mirror rod which extended out from the front of his helmet on the left side. He was also wearing a brown t-shirt, dark shorts, and a grey or blue backpack at the time, and riding a light blue or grey bicycle with a unique rear fender.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect is asked to contact Constable Lisa Decaire via email at [email protected].

  • He has also drawn the same graffiti at Lake Ontario Park and the walkway along the waterfront at KPH.

    • I really hope he is caught. Spray painting memorial benches is really low.
      Lake Ontario Park and at Lemoine Point has this person no sense of respect.
