Graffiti is Causing Damage to Downtown Heritage Buildings

Our downtown heritage buildings are being damaged on a weekly basis by graffiti.

The paint being sprayed on them is degrading the brick work and paint, with city workers being put at risk in the cleanup operation.

Over $1 million a year is spent cleaning up graffiti, and now iconic murals are being destroyed because of it.

Some ways to spot if someone is a tagger is by the items they may have; spray paint cans, work gloves, a sketch book of designs, stencils for a quick tag, fat permanent markers. They will also wear a hoody, sunglasses, hat and bandanna to conceal their identity. The 2 people in the picture are suspected of causing such damage in a different case of tagging.

If you recognize them or think you know a tagger, let us know who they are by calling 1-800-222-8477, or submit a tip online at www.victoriacrimestoppers.ca. You will remain anonymous and could earn a reward.

The picture below shows the size of recent tagging on a heritage building downtown (the graffiti has been obscured as to not bring recognition to the criminal).
