The City of Lloydminster is asking motorists and pedestrians to be watchful after barbed fencing staples were found scattered in the Servus Sports Centre parking lot.

“It’s extremely disappointing to hear people in our community have little regard for the health and safety of our community members and guests,” said Glenn Alford, senior manager of public safety for the City of Lloydminster, adding the fact city-owned vehicles have been damaged by the intentional placement of the bent fencing staples.

“We believe someone is determined to wilfully damage property and assets resulting in significant cost and added expense to ratepayers and private property owners.”



This is the fourth instance of malicious activity at this location involving fencing staples. City staff was alerted of the most recent issue on Monday, July 25. City maintenance staff has since removed the debris from the parking lot.

Anyone who has information related to this matter or may have been a victim and has not yet reported it is asked to contact the Lloydminster RCMP Detachment at 780-808-8400 or Public Safety at 780-874-3710.

Motorists are reminded that the parking lot is closed from 12:30-5:30 a.m. daily.
