File # 2021-11384

The Port Alberni RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance to identify this individual who is believed to be involved in some graffiti at a local business.

On October 29th 2021, at approximately 1:30 a.m. an unknown person attended the Port Posh Wash located at 4508 Gertrude St. 

This suspect was caught on camera using a paint marker, leaving several images on the building and doors of the business.  Investigators are attempting to decipher the messages, knowing that graffiti vandals often use the same "tags" at various locations.

"The key to controlling graffiti is rapid and consistent removal" said Sergeant Chris Manseau, Division Media Relations Officer "In some cases, graffiti may need to be removed from the same spot a number of times in order to discourage the vandal. Studies have shown that graffiti tags left up almost always attract more graffiti and other crime to the area"

If you have any information on the identity of the person shown, or this crime, please contact the Port Alberni RCMP non-emergency line at 250-723-2424 and refer to file 2021-11384.
