The Revelstoke RCMP is seeking public tips after a group of strangers gave a Revelstoke man a bullet-riddled lasagna on Christmas day.
The police say the bizarre incident happened at about 12:50 a.m. on Dec. 25, 2021.
A Revelstoke man was walking home from downtown after midnight. As he neared the roundabout on Victoria Road, he was approached by a group of three or four men in a black Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The group offered the man a ride home and also offered him a slice of lasagna.
The man declined the ride offer, but accepted the lasagna.
When he got home and opened the baked dish, he found two .22-calibre rifle rounds inside the package.
After police were notified, they tried to find the black F-150, but were unable to.
Police are now asking for public tips to help cut through the case’s hard-broiled outer shell in order to peel back its layers.
“This is certainly a concerning incident and police continue to investigate to attempt to identify the suspects,” said Revelstoke RCMP Sergeant Chris Dodds in a statement. “If anyone has any information to assist with this investigation, please contact the Revelstoke RCMP or Crimestoppers.”
