Graffiti continues to plague the Lumby area.

The latest target was the vacant Whitevale school Dec. 3. It was heavily vandalized with racist terms and obscenities.

Police do not have any suspects but believe the same individual may have continued their antics in the neighbouring subdivision.

“Street signs, road signs, the road itself and even driveways were also tagged the same weekend,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce.

A homeowner walking his dog at around 11 p.m. scared off the culprit, who is described only as a youth wearing a black hoodie.

Any information about these latest incidents would be appreciated by the Lumby detachment.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the extensive tagging throughout Lumby Nov. 9 continues.

“Suspects have been identified and continue to gather witness statements in the hope of laying criminal charges against those responsible,” said Proce.

Three Charles Bloom Secondary students were suspended for their roles in the tagging that night.
