Graffiti police chase vandals

WATCH out! The graffiti police are about.

Byron United has identified what it calls two “serial offenders” and now it’s asking those in the community to be on the look out for the taggers.

Just recently Byron United was successful in obtaining funding from Keep Australia Beautiful NSW to paint five of the bus stops in town that had been vandalised.

The task was completed just two weeks ago.

Since that time the bus stops have been tagged once again but a quick coat of paint has covered the damage.

Byron United vice president Paul Waters said it appeared there were two graffiti artists attacking the town’s charm and beauty.

“The tagging is town wide, not just on the bus stops and, in some areas, lettering covers whole walls and fences,” he said.

“We are asking the community to keep a watch and report any incidents to info@byronunited.org.au or Byron Bay police on 6685 9499.
