Man arrested in connection with multiple graffiti incidents in Mississauga
A 20-year-old man is facing charges after allegedly defacing Mississauga properties with graffiti.
Peel police say that since 2019, officers have been investigating multiple reports of mischief related to the appearance of graffiti on public and private property.
Police allege the majority of the incidents occurred in the evening, typically in Rathburn Road and Fieldgate Drive area.
Police say that in the latter part of 2019, officers began to see more graffiti on bus stops, businesses, park benches, and private property. A commonality of the word "Nayper" would be displayed and would often be accompanied with a trident symbol and/or devil's horns.
The trend continued in 2020 and was also discovered in areas of Toronto, police say.
On Monday, April 6, 2020, a search warrant was executed at a residence and a Mississauga man was arrested. Police say the accused was charged with nine counts of mischief over $5,000. He was then released into the custody of Toronto police, where he was charged with additional counts of mischief over $5,000.
Officers are asking anyone with information on this matter to contact Sgt. Baker #2111 of the 12 Division Neighborhood Policing Unit or call 905-453-2121, ext. 1200.
