Vandals paint the town ugly shade

POLICE are appealing for information after Kingaroy residents awoke to vandalised and graffiti plagued roads and fences yesterday morning.

Kingaroy police said black spraypaint marked fences, walls, gutters and roadways in the Hillview Estate.

Kingaroy police officer- in-charge Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said the offence was of particular concern because it created huge costs for its victims.

"It costs money and time to clean," Snr Sgt Frank said.

He said vandalism was not a common occurrence in Kingaroy but there were spates of it.

"It's been some time since the last spate," he said.

Dependent upon their age and the severity of the vandalism, Snr Sgt Frank said offenders could face court for wilful damage charges.

"While offenders might think it's funny, it's actually not," he said.

"If they want to do it, do it to their parents' house and see how that goes."

If you have any information phone 41604900.
