North Vancouver tagger accused of leaving his mark on 90 buildings


A 16-year-old boy has been accused of putting over 90 graffiti tags this year in North Vancouver, and is facing multiple charges.

The teen tagger who left the word “STOCK” in spray paint on public and private buildings was arrested in April, according to North Vancouver RCMP. The RCMP announced Monday that Crown Counsel has recently approved five charges of mischief against the youth, who now has a Young Offender Court date in December 2014.

The North Vancouver RCMP’s Cpl. De Jong indicated that the public played a key role in apprehending the minor, who was observed at several locations spray painting his tag.
