Saturday, January 05, 2013   by: Staff



On the 4th of January, 2013, the accused 29 year old Adrian Smith of 222 Albert St. East was arrested at 11:06 hours for 7 counts of mischief to 7 tires on 7 separate vehicles. 

As well, he was charged with 5 counts of trespass at night. 

A witness on Wellington Street East in the 400-block observed the accused between the vehicles on March Street. 

They watched the accused walk west on Wellington Street, and was observed bending over and puncturing the tire of a 2005 Toyota CTR.

29 years old slashing tires at random.
That is ridiculous! What a loser.
phantom 1/5/2013 10:44:11 AM Report

This is hardly a petty crime...I don't know about you but the tires on my truck are about $250.00 each! Guess who gets to pay for the new ones?..the owner, not the lil bastard that did it! Maybe we should cut the bottoms off his shoes and see how he likes it!

If there was a witness why did it take 7 slashing before anything was done?just a thought!!!
JROC 1/5/2013 10:53:32 AM Report

nevermind the shoes do his legs and arms, well then you should just do the rest lol. I had 2 slashed and ended up replacing all 4. Random slashing in our neighborhood.

29 years old and doing pranks like this? This crap you'd expect from a delinquent 12-16 year old.

Insurance will only cover the tire that is slashed, but vehicles drive poorly unless you change tires in at least pairs. Not to mention the hassle to the car owners.

This punk should be given 200 community hours service for each car he vandalized plus he should pay restitution.
Slim Shady 1/5/2013 11:16:12 AM Report

Never mind community service.... Searching reveals that this sack of crap has be charged with drug offences and spend years 20-24 of his life in prison for armed robbery of Macs on Queen Street.

Vandalism or any other crime should send him back to prison for another 2 years. He obviously hasn't learned or reformed from his last lock-up.

Are you serious outcrop. Bravo to that witness. That witness was probably on the phone with the cops as the loser was slashing tires. The cops were probably telling him not to engage that guy. If the witness had of confronted him we might have had more then slashing of tires. BRAVO BRAVO to that witness. Is someones tires seriously worth the risk of a life. The guy reported was was going down and allowed the PROPER authorities to handle the man . Seriously outcrop you need to rethink that post

The witness who alerted authorities did everything correctly, and it's not worth endangering themself over someone else's tires. We should all be grateful that there are people who won't turn a blind eye to this kind of behaviour.

Kudos to them. They did everything right.
Dead End Kid 1/5/2013 11:57:46 AM Report

It appears he did this because maybe he wants back into prison. If it is true that he has spent most of his life behind bars maybe he feels lost on the streets.
Studlee 1/5/2013 12:12:09 PM Report

It appears that the soo's # 1 criminologist appears to understand why he was slashing the tires. I'd say he was just a bored idiot with nothing else better to do. Maybe the great wisdom of dead end kid knows the motives of all, through and through!

This guy should be back in the big house wearing a dress because I really think he likes the inmates. And the next time the boys in blue pick him up, drop him off in Ottawa, let Harper adopt him.

I wonder what would happen to someone doing this in China?......organ doner!
BigDaddy 1/5/2013 4:36:48 PM Report

phantom, you are bang on...this nonsense cost thousands in damage... needlessly.

I'm just waiting for those with the fuzzy logic who give their comments when it comes to having cars being broken into....guess it's the fault of the car owners for parking there right?
Which of course, it isn't.

Bounder! you got my vote.

Calm down Studlee, it's just a theory, that's all. Why can't I make a comment without you having to throw your two cents in?

Ya i know that jackass also him and a friend of his broke into my house long time ago and stole a lot of my things but he got caught and to think the our tax money supports these welfare lowlife's
sinikka 1/6/2013 4:58:40 AM Report

Where's the 3 strikes rule. This guy should be charged as dangerous offender and given real time not 2 years. There was no financial gain to him for slashing tires. Can't fuel a drug habit slashing tires. Walking around with a knife that can slash through tires is pretty serious imho. This is the segment of society that does not deserve rehabilitation. Useless trash.
