The Hope Station House was among several buildings that were spray painted last week in a new tagging spree.

Tagger leaves mark in Hope

Police find graffiti in over 50 locations

A graffiti artist was busy again last week tagging over 50 different locations in the community.

Hope RCMP said buildings were spray painted sometime between 9 p.m. on Aug. 31 and 6 a.m. on Sept. 1.

Some of the businesses that were targeted were Lordco, Sunshine Lanes, Lucky Dollar Store, District of Hope, and Hope Community Services.

Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said this type of vandalism costs taxpayers and business owners thousands of dollars to clean up.

There was a prolific tagger making his mark downtown earlier this year in January and February, but police have not confirmed if the incidents are related.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or report a tip anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
