n the early morning hours of August 27, 2012, two males attended the Canadian War Museum, located at 1 Vimy Place. They arrived in separate 4 door dark coloured vehicles.
Police announced charges against the two men more than four months after a swastika and a racist phrase were spray-painted on a CF-100 Avro aircraft stored outside the museum.
Such incidents are rare, museum officials say, but that doesn't lessen the impact.
"Any incident such as this is really disconcerting. Any kind of vandalism we have on site is disturbing to say the least," museum spokesman Yasmine Mingay said.
"We're really pleased the police investigation has culminated in the identification of individuals."
The vandalism was caught on camera. It showed two men arriving in separate dark-coloured vehicles shortly before 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 27.
Police did not release details about the crime until mid-October, when surveillance images were released showing the suspected vandals.
Joel Lendore and Simon Los have each been charged with one count of mischief under $5,000.
