Some will have you believe it’s art, others believe it is a costly, unsightly, nuisance. The courts call it a crime. A 24-year-old Duncan man has been arrested and charged in relation to graffiti. Adrian Gary Wilson will appear in a provincial court in Duncan April 19.
A concerned citizen with a keen sense of observation called police March 18 at about 3:15 a.m. to report a man dressed in dark clothing tagging the side of a building on Coronation Avenue. North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP had fielded a lot of vandalism calls of this nature and were very interested in identifying this man.
He was located a short distance away, taken into custody and later released on his own recognizance with conditions to abide by. Wilson has been formally charged with one count each of mischief under $5000, disguise face with intent, and obstruct a police officer.
