Police in Worthing are appealing for information after a spate of graffiti in the Broadwater area of the town.
Since February 27th, residents and businesses have reported seeing graffiti appearing in the local area including Teville Gate, Broadwater, Sompting and East Worthing.
A number of different ‘tags’ are being sprayed onto buildings, walls and street furniture.
PCSO Nikki Burstow from the Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “It is really disappointing to see such disrespect being shown to the local area. We have received a number of reports from the local community about the graffiti appearing. There are a number of reported incidents where similar or identical tags have been sprayed so we believe a number of them are linked.
“Adur and Worthing Council Services are cleaning up and removing the tags promptly when they receive the reports. We are appealing for anyone who may have any information which would help us in our investigation to come forward.
“If you have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the local area, someone who may be regularly buying spray paints from a local shop or if you recognise any of the tags, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 101 quoting serial 1314 of February 27th. Alternatively you can speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
