reports some $40,000 damage was inflicted on eight pieces of Cliffs'
excavation equipment in the project's Nevilane Drive area.
Windows were smashed in four earth rollers, an excavator and two rock trucks while the Kubota site vehicle's tires were slashed and its engine parts were trashed.
Six homes on Salish Road were also broken into and paint was poured onto equipment, tools, walls and floors.
Graffiti was spray-painted on the interior and exterior of the homes.

"That's probably a $150,000 bill including drywall and hardwood floors."
A reward will be offered for information about the destruction.
