Four people face charges for spreading graffiti early Saturday morning in Halifax.
Shortly after midnight, officers assigned to the Central Quick Response Unit arrested three men and a male youth after observing them paint graffiti on traffic signs and utility boxes in the area of Gladstone and North Streets.
The three men, all 19, and the 17-year-old male youth, each face a charge of property damage. They were release from custody under a number of conditions and will appear in Halifax Provincial Court and Halifax Provincial Youth Court, respectively, at a later date.
Spreading graffiti is a crime and its presence can impact our community’s reputation, property values and citizens’ sense of pride and safety. If you observe someone spreading graffiti, call police immediately at 902-490-5020.
