Police Seek Public's Assistance
(GREY HIGHLANDS, ON) - Grey County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) continue to investigate after two properties were found sprayed with graffiti during the weekend of January 12, 2013. Culprit(s) sprayed graffiti symbols and profanities on the walls of Medike Branding Solutions and the old foundation of Chapman's Ice Cream, both located on Main Street West, Markdale, in the Municipality of Grey Highlands.

Graffiti is not a victimless crime and has a negative impact on the community. If graffiti is ignored it can:

* leave the impression that no one cares

- lead to increased graffiti and crime

* prevent prosperity and reduce property values

* decrease residents' feelings of safety.

Person(s) responsible may be charged with the criminal offence of mischief, which is the wilful damage or destruction of property and can be punishable for up to a 10 year prison sentence.

Get involved. Report suspicious activity involving person(s) or vehicle(s) to police.

Anyone who may assist with this investigation is asked to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
