A second report came on the afternoon of November 12, 2014. Similarly, the report stated that nails had been found in close proximity to vehicles in the area of Edmonton Street, Laurier Crescent and both 11th and 12th Avenues.
On the morning of March 31, 2015, Prince George RCMP received another report of nails being placed near the corner of 11th Avenue and Edmonton Street. Some 20 nails were removed from the street.
