Crime of the week: vandalism

Crime Stoppers is asking for public's help to get rid of scourge of graffiti

  • Feb. 14, 2015 2:00 p.m.

Graffiti has become a huge problem in our communities and is having a very detrimental effect on how we are perceived.

It leaves an impression that it is unsafe and uncared for, which in turn affects business growth and visits from tourists.

This is harmful to all citizens and can be corrected through a concerted effort from all residents by reporting information on the people responsible for this vandalism.

You are asked to contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or via our website at for other anonymous ways of passing along info on this or any other crime.

Should your information lead to an arrest, you may qualify for a cash reward up to $2,000.

Crime Stoppers is not a police program and does not subscribe to call display.

You will never be asked your name, nor will you ever testify in court. We don’t want your name — just your information.
