Police in Bay Bulls are investigating after someone went on a mini-crime spree in the Southern Shore town.
Officers and other emergency workers were called to a crane fire near the harbour early Saturday morning. Shortly after, officers received a call about another fire on the other side of the harbour in one of O'Brien's Boat Tours' boats.
The boat was severely damaged, officers say.
Police are also investigating several reports of smashed windows in the area including at an inn and the post office. All of the vandalism happened around the same time and it's believed that the same people were involved in the incidents.
Officers are investigating and arson is suspected as the cause of the fires.
Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to contact
the Avalon East RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
