Young spray-painters seem to be running rampant in Langford, as police release yet another report of two 12-year-olds arrested for graffiti-ing public property on Tuesday.
On May 7th, witnesses called West Shore RCMP to report observing two girls spray painting the rear wall of The Brick store located at 2945 Jacklin Rd in Langford.
The paint on the wall was still drying when officers showed up to the scene, and the girls were caught red-handed with wet paint all over their hands.
“Our officers attended the scene and the spray painting was still taking place. Out of a group of 6 youth, witnesses identified two 12 year old girls as being the spray painters,” says Cst. Nancy Saggar.
“The girls were arrested for Mischief Under $5,000 and released to their parents. They are both awaiting court dates.”
According to Saggar, one of the boys in the group was also given a $230 fine for being a minor in possession of a cannabis accessory.
Earlier this week, officers arrested a 12-year-old girl and 13-year-old girl for spray painting a building and hydro box near the bus exchange on Station Avenue in Langford on Sunday, May 5th.
In total, West Shore RCMP have arrested 4 youths for graffiti-ing public property this week.
