The Weyburn Police Service is seeking the public's help with an investigation of a graffiti incident.

The act of vandalism was done to a rock in the Barber Crescent area.

Deputy Chief Rod Stafford said it has been an isolated incident.

“Fortunately for us, we don’t have a lot of that, nor do we want a lot of that,” he said. “We’re not sure what precipitated it, and it hasn’t been anymore widespread, or at least we’re not aware of it having been more widespread than the one instance.”

He said that although the rock wasn’t harmed in the incident, in its own way, the graffiti will cost taxpayers.

“It is unsightly, and it’s difficult to clean off of stone, and the City has to expend some time and energy to do that, and that all factors into workloads, and eventually taxation and all that,” he said.

“We’ve got a very clean community and a very respected community, and we’d like to keep it like that,” he added.

Stafford is asking for any information the public might have regarding the July 5th graffiti.

“Usually people are talking about this, or may have seen somebody that didn’t think anything of it at the time, but now that this out in the public, it may jog their memory as to a vehicle or a person or description or something, we’d be interested in that.”

Anyone with information can contact the WPS or Crime Stoppers.
