A fired construction worker used an excavator to destroy some homes in Ontario Canada. He jumped into a track backhoe destroying several luxury homes in Ontario’s exclusive Muskoka Marina Oddity Central reports.
The 59-year-old man has been charged with mischief and slapped with a $5,000 fine. A viral video began circulating online showing him using an excavator to severely damage several properties in Muskoka Marina. It’s a popular summer retreat for the rich and famous in Ontario.
Police officers who arrived on the scene just after 9 p.m. on July 21st discovered “significant damage” to the marina on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka Lakes Township, but found no suspect.
It was only after a video recorded by a local, went viral on Twitter that the 59-year-old perpetrator was identified. He is now scheduled to appear in court and risks spending time behind bars.
Although neither police nor the owners of the damaged marina homes were willing to speculate on the motives of the man, the viral video posted on Twitter suggests that it is the work of a disgruntled former employee.
You can’t make this up. A disgruntled, fired employee from a marina near our lake house snapped and destroyed the entire marina with an excavator. Does anyone have more information on what happened? #Muskoka pic.twitter.com/XcCLAVBFMy— Don Tapscott (@dtapscott) July 27, 2022
