WATCH: RCMP arrest four girls in two days for spray painting graffiti

Four youths were arrested for spray-painting graffiti in two separate incidents this week.

The girls were released into the custody of their parents with a promise to appear in court.

In a press conference, West Shore RCMP media relations officer Cst. Nancy Saggar said it’s “hard to say” if the warmer weather is leading to more mischief in the region. However, “spray paint isn’t going to work on a cold, rainy day,” she noted.

“We don’t know if the two incidents are related,” she added.
