A lengthy investigation into a number of graffiti incidents in Regina has resulted in the arrest of a teenager.
Regina police took a 17-year-old boy into custody Wednesday and have since charged him with 29 counts of mischief under $5,000.
Police said the alleged incidents took place between July 29 and Oct. 21 this year, occurring mainly in the 2000 to 2300 blocks of McAra and McDonald Streets.
The surfaces defaced included several overhead garage doors, fences, power poles, walls and doors of a school, the wall of a church, plastic garbage containers and recycle bins, signs, trailers, and vehicles.
The investigation by a Graffiti Coordinator and other police members led to the identification of the possible suspect.
The teenager cannot be named in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. He made his first court appearance in Regina Thursday.
