Graffiti spree leads to $2,000 in property damage

The Ladysmith RCMP is asking for information about a late-night graffiti spree along Chemainus Road.

The Ladysmith RCMP is calling on the public to help  identify those responsible for a late-night graffiti spree on the southern outskirts of Ladysmith last weekend.

According to a press release issued by Staff Sgt. Dave Herman, unknown persons spray painted “profanity and drawings of a phallic nature” on “cars, garage doors, post office boxes, speed signs, street signs, fire hydrants, and roadways” along Chemainus Road from North Watts Road to the intersection of Highway 1 and North Davis Road.

These “criminal acts of mischief” were carried out “in the early morning hours of Sunday, Aug. 18,” Herman wrote.

The RCMP estimates the damage to properties along Chemainus Road to be “well in excess of $2,000.”

“Police are aware of a few parties that occurred in the neighbourhood overnight Saturday,” Herman wrote, adding that the RCMP “feel that the subject responsible may have been a guest or a friend of a guest” at one of the parties in question.

The RCMP urges anyone with information related to this incident to contact the Ladysmith detachment at 250-245-2215 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
