A 33-year-old man has been arrested after a police officer watched him spray paint.
On June 9, just before midnight a Westshore RCMP officer was patrolling on the Millstream Road overpass. The officer observed a man spray painting graffiti on the circular wall of the tunnel underneath the off-ramp that leads from Highway 1 to Millstream Road in Langford.
According to Const. Nancy Saggar a search of the suspects backpack found five cans of spray paint which were seized and the man was arrested for Mischief Under $5,000.
“The suspect now has a pending court date to answer for the crime,” says Saggar.
This is the sixth arrest the West Shore RCMP have made in 35 days.
“Graffiti is a crime, we will continue to pursue criminal charges against anyone who is caught spray painting graffiti,” she says.
