Charges laid in graffiti incident
Police responded to report of suspicious behaviour
Summerside Police Services laid charges in a graffiti incident that took place in the city this week.
At around 5:20 p.m. on Tuesday, police received a report of a suspicious person in an alley between two buildings on Water Street. The person was reported to be wearing a hoodie and a bandana covering their face. Police attended the area and located the person in the alley who was found in the process of “tagging” the building.
The suspect, a 27-year-old man, was arrested at the scene.
The man was released from custody and will appear in court at a later date to answer to one charge of mischief and another unrelated charge of theft under $5,000.
Police in Summerside have received a large number of reports of graffiti over the past few months and encourage the public to report any instances of suspicious behaviour.
