Three teenagers nabbed in graffiti sting face chargesCHESHAM — Thames Valley Police nabbed three teenagers last week for alleged illegal graffiti.

Authorities claim the three Pond Park suspects were netted in a graffiti sting aimed at stamping out the practice of spray-painting in public places, according to a Thames Valley Police news release.

All three were arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage and have been released on police bail until the first week of August, while inquiries continue.

“Many graffiti artists might think what they are doing is harmless fun, but in fact it is criminal damage, it makes people feel unsafe and there is a cost to the owners of the property to remove the tags,” Thames Valley Police inspector Ray Scotcher said in the release.
