Edmonton police have laid dozens of graffiti-related charges against a 20-year-old man, for alleged graffiti offences in the area of 118 Avenue in north-east Edmonton.
Police have charged Jorden Hall-Coutu, 20 with 28 counts of mischief under $5000.
The charges come days after the City of Edmonton announced an audit of its ‘Record, Report, and Remove' program had found graffiti vandalism was down 43 per cent in one year.
Police are reminding Edmontonians to help police and city officials by reporting graffiti to 311, and if they see graffiti vandalism in progress, to call 911.
Hall-Coutu has been scheduled to appear in court on March 30, 2012.
