6 Sooke bus windshields hit by pellet gun

RCMP in Sooke, B.C. are looking for someone who is taking pot shots at the windshields of B.C. Transit buses.

Transit spokesperson Meribeth Burton says someone with a pellet gun hit the front windshields of six buses over the past week, as they were travelling along Sooke Road between 5 p.m. PT and 8 p.m.

"The first two incidents happened on Hallowe'en night and you know, you can sort of forgive some nonsense that happens around Hallowe'en," says Burton.

"But we started to notice a pattern and that's when the Sooke RCMP have become involved."

Burton says no one has been injured, but it has cost $10,000 dollars to replace the buses' windshields.

"They are all fired at the front windshield. You know this is a public safety issue," she said.

"It's not funny, it's not a prank, it's not child's play.  It can be a very dangerous situation."
