The Weyburn Police Service saw at least 15 incidents of spray painting and graffiti on either Thursday night or Friday morning.

"Spray painting also known as graffiti or tagging, I don't know if people responsible realize the effect it has on the community, says Constable Darcy Cleasby with the Weyburn Police Service. "Not only does it look terrible but it causes the business time and money to remove it, which in turn I'm sure is passed on to the customer, so I encourage everybody to look after the community and report any tagging or graffiti you see happening."

The graffiti was all around Weyburn and caused a lot of clean up for the businesses and homeowners alike.

"The objects that have been spray painted ranged from commerical businesses, vehicles, sheds, garage doors and fences," says Constable Cleasby. "It was also found that the person or persons responsible tried to light a used spray paint can on fire and started a small grass fire which thanks to the wet weather we have had the last couple of days did not proceed farther into the yard.

Weyburn Police are still investigating this matter and ask that if anyone has information to please call the Weyburn Police Service at (306)848-3250.
