Gananoque police are investigating a case where a pickup truck was caught on camera defacing a local rainbow Pride crosswalk.

Just after 3 a.m. on Monday, police say a driver intentionally conducted a break-stand and burn-out over the painted Pride flag, located on Park Street at King Street East.

In the video, there doesn’t appear to be any traffic in the area during the incident, however, a person can be seen sitting on a park bench in the upper left side of the frame.

The vehicle appears to be a dark coloured, newer Chevrolet Silverado model with custom tires and black aftermarket rims.

Anyone with information about the vehicle, driver or was a witness to the incident is asked to contact Gananoque police at 613-382-4509.

This is the second report of someone defacing the same crosswalk in about a week.

Another incident was reported on July 23.

The report was that of a male driver in his truck spinning his tires to damage the painted flag. 

The driver, a 56-year-old man from Leeds and the 1000 Islands area, was located a short time later and charged with stunt driving and mischief under $5,000.
