Since June 7 there have been a number of instances of spray-painted graffiti, targeting buildings, vehicles, parks and public washrooms in Ladner.
“This amounts to thousands of dollars in damages, not to mention city and police time spent painting over damaged surfaces, or investigating,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police. The word Dune was spray-painted on surfaces in each of the cases, she confirms.
Reports started to come into police June 7 about spray-paint at Memorial Park, and also along the 4800 block of Chisholm St, where four vans were targeted by the suspect.
June 24 there were further reports of spray-painting damage, this time at Ladner Harbour Park, within the men’s washroom.
