Alleged taggers arrested by police in Qualicum Beach

On Sunday at 10:15 p.m., police say a Qualicum Beach man called police after he noticed three young males spray-painting a dumpster. He provided police dispatch with a description and licence number, after he watched the suspects flee in a vehicle. The Oceanside RCMP caught up with the vehicle shortly thereafter and arrested three local men. Police say the men later admitted responsibility for a number of graffiti 'tags' that had been found in the area. The men, aged between 17 and 19 years, were released from custody and will appear in Provincial Court at a later date to face charges of mischief. "We are very appreciative of the man who called police. Graffiti is unsightly and very costly for business owners and taxpayers," said Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Jesse Foreman.              — NEWS Staff/RCMP news release
