Victoria police say they caught the city’s two worst taggers, responsible for thousands of dollars in damage to the region every year.
A 26-year-old Saanich man and a 23-year-old Salt Spring Island man were arrested at 2:30 a.m. on Saturday in the 800-block of Fort Street when they were caught spray-painting a building. They both face mischief charges. Police declined to say with which tags the men are associated.
Also that morning, police arrested two teens in the 500-block of Belleville Street for tagging bus shelters and a fifth man, age 25, tagging a building in the 300-block of Waterfront Crescent.
