Summerside police have confirmed they are investigating at least three complaints relating to strange incidents at the Red Shores Summerside Raceway.

Police said Monday they are looking into reports of a theft on May 29, damage being done to tires on a cart on June 9 and a horse sustaining unexplained injuries on June 12.

No further information was available yet, but the investigations remain ongoing.

Users of the raceway’s stables are concerned about the safety of their horses and property as unexplained vandalism like this has been a recent problem. Some have said they intend to install security cameras for peace of mind.

“Without the security cameras, we can’t be 100 per cent sure. Horses can get into trouble themselves, but they don’t need some stranger coming here and unlocking them and then getting hurt as a result,” said Vance Cameron, the track announcer.
