"I was getting my other vehicle ready to sell it and I looked over and saw our other car and it was spray painted green and pink. I walked over to it and my jaw just dropped."
 
Rutledge told MIX 107 her neighbour stopped by while she was looking at her vehicle and said she'd seen some suspicious people walking around during the night.
 
"I was like 'oh my goodness, is this gang colours? Could we be involved in something?'"
 
"After the RCMP came, took pictures and got our statement, I borrowed some WD40 from my neighbour. We sprayed it on there, let it sit for a couple of seconds and luckily it wiped right off."
 
Anyone with information is asked to call the Morinville RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
