Police Seek Public Assistance in Graffiti Investigation

​The Halton Regional Police Service is seeking assistance in identifying suspects associated with graffiti in Georgetown.  Since February 16, 2019 there have been at least 12 occurrences of graffiti in highly visible areas of the downtown core in Georgetown.

Five unique "tags" have been recognized based on their individual graffiti style and signature.  Each tag uses a different colour along with a distinct style of writing.  The signatures are as follows:

"Deadx" (normally painted in black)

"Dead" (contains a scythe extending on the last "d")

"Jade" (normally painted in black and written in cursive)

"RIOT" (written in all capitals and normally painted in red)


Please see attached photographs for examples.

Police are encouraging members of the community to contact if they have information regarding the parties responsible for the graffiti.  Anyone with information can contact Cst. Mike O'Halloran by email at Michael.O'Halloran@haltonpolice.ca or the on-duty Staff Sergeant at 905-878-5511 ext 2410.

Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers "See something? Hear something? Know something? Contact Crime Stoppers" at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.ca.

Police would like to remind the public that painting and/or drawing graffiti is a criminal offence.​
