Police in Houston have released video of last week’s vandalism at the Coastal Gas Link (CGL) camp hoping the public can help identify those individuals responsible for the acts of violence and damage.

Video footage obtained by investigators show several people, some armed with axes; storm the property, attack a company vehicle while an employee was inside the truck at the Coastal Gas Link (CGL) camp near Houston on Thursday, February 17, 2022.

RCMP said the unknown individuals, who were similarly dressed, swung axes at the vehicle; spray painted the window and ignited what is suspected to be a flare gun.

Thankfully, the CGL employees were not physically harmed.

“Our investigation remains ongoing, with the site waiting for an environmental analysis to be conducted from the damaged heavy machinery,” the RCMP media release said.

“Access to the area remains controlled at this time to ensure the safety of analysts and investigators, and to preserve evidence at the scene.”

If you have any information about this or know who the individuals are, you are asked to contact the Houston RCMP at (250) 845-2204.
