Revelstoke RCMP have arrested one female youth and anticipate they will arrest three male youths after graffiti incidents

Revelstoke RCMP have arrested one female youth for mischief following graffiti incidents around Revelstoke late last week. RCMP expect to charge three more youths.

“Grad 2013” was sprayed on several buildings in town, including the Revelstoke RCMP station, the Revelstoke Community Centre, school property, public buildings and random walls.

RCMP said they believe three other males were involved in the incidents.

RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Kim Hall said the investigation is ongoing “with anticipated arrests to follow.”
