Man who slashed more than 150 car tires identified by RCMP

North Vancouver - The man who is believed to be responsible for the December 4th, 2014, tire-slashing escapade has been identified today by the RCMP using security footage.
Last year more than 150 tires were found slashed around the Capilano University and Tilford area. The deed was supposed to have taken place within the span of a few hours.
North Vancouver RCMP said that "These numerous acts of mischief occurred overnight, causing numerous accounts of inconvenience and financial loss for the victims."
This is not something new to the Lower Mainland as the last few years there has been an increase in tire-slashing incidents, such as the mass slashing-spree in Burnaby that caused more than $200,000 in damages in 2012. Or the man who decided to cut the tires of some 80 cars in Surrey.
The RCMP stated a clear warning in their release that "For public safety concerns, do not drive your vehicle if your tires are deflated."
The alleged suspect has been identified through security cameras. Police are asking the general public that if they recognize the individual, as seen in these two pictures, to call Cst. Andrew Banville of the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-969-7534. You can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-847 (TIPS).
