If you can identify this tag, daubed on an Exmouth beauty spot, you could be in line for a cash reward.
A cash reward is on offer from the police to anyone who can identify the vandal who sprayed this graffiti at an Exmouth beauty spot.
The name that tag appeal has been launched by Devon and Cornwall police after officers at Exmouth reported an increase in graffiti in the town – and along the Lympstone to Exmouth cycle path.
This ‘tag’ – the way the vandal identifies themselves to others – has been sprayed on the wooden fence along the cycle path.
Anyone who can identify the culprit behind this tag could be in line to receive a cash reward if their information leads to an arrest and charge.
Police Community Support Officer Malcolm Maguire said officers were keen to stamp out graffiti in Exmouth before the problem escalated further.
The officer said vandals had been targeting the cycle path, with the worst hit areas between the commando training camp and the over-bridge.
PCSO Maguire said: “This is just one of the tags. There are quite a few. There is extensive tagging on the boarding and metal side of the bridge.
“We want to find out who’s doing it. In the past six weeks we have seen an increase in graffiti.
“It’s unsightly and it will encourage others to do like wise.”
Those who call with information can remain anonymous and no one will be asked for their name.
Telephone numbers of callers will not be traced and all information received will be passed on to the police.
Call Crimestoppers with information, on 0800 555111.
