Van­dals dam­age town

Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

CHILDERS has had a spate of wil­ful dam­age com­plaints made to po­lice since Satur­day.

An un­known per­son or per­sons in the re­gion spray-painted graf­fiti and tagged ve­hi­cles and build­ings. Se­nior Con­sta­ble Sharon Mor­gan said: “I have taken two re­ports on Tues­day and one on Satur­day.

“Some­one is go­ing around town and spray paint­ing var­i­ous ‘tags’ on any­thing they can find. So far two ve­hi­cles have dam­age, the show­grounds and the school.”

The Catholic Church was a tar­get for van­dals, with vul­gar lan­guage used and tagged on the church sign.

Childers po­lice are urg­ing the com­mu­nity to re­port any wil­ful dam­age caused by any graf­fiti artist.

“If you no­tice any­thing out of the or­di­nary, re­port it to the po­lice,” Se­nior Con­sta­ble Mor­gan said.

Po­lice are con­cerned by the dam­age and are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dents.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Mor­gan said: “We have con­tacted re­tail­ers around the area ask­ing about re­cent paint pur­chases. We urge par­ents to keep an eye on their chil­dren dur­ing the hol­i­days.” The po­lice say they are dis­gusted by the be­hav­iour of the per­pe­tra­tor or per­pe­tra­tors and are in­ves­ti­gat­ing all leads. Po­lice urge lo­cals to re­port any dam­age.
