The Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is investigating a number of occurrences that occurred in the Town of Penetanguishene between October 17- October 18, 2017. Sometime overnight, the Water Treatment Facility located on Payette Drive and a public park located on Oxley Drive were targeted by an unknown person or persons who spray painted graffiti. The word “Life” was repeated spray painted on structures in the park as well as a Canada Post Residential Mailbox, a fence located on Kerr Drive, on pavement, sewer pipes and other municipal structures in and around the area. Earlier this month, the OPP responded to a similar complaint where “D.S. Solo” had been spray painted on a water facility holding tank, and a shed located at the rear of a residence located on Kerr Drive. In this case, red and blue spray paint was used. Graffiti is not art unless it is done in conjunction and supported by a community as part of a beautification or renewal type process. Police and community leaders recognize that graffiti is a serious crime that can negatively impact the beauty of any community and can be costly and time consuming to remove. The crime of Mischief is serious enough that it carries maximum of 10 years in prison upon conviction if the property that has been damaged has a value in excess of $5000.
