North Melbourne graffiti crackdown

October 11, 2010 § Leave a comment


Social media websites have been blamed for turning North Melbourne into a graffiti hot-spot attracting under-age taggers from across the state.

Sergeant Monique Kelley said some local traders were believed to be selling spray-cans to the youths, which is illegal if the buyer is under 18.

And she said it was likely the sales were being promoted online, as kids were travelling from as far afield as Echuca. “Word of mouth can’t travel this well. They (the businesses) must be advertising on Facebook or another social site,” Sgt Kelley told Melbourne Leader.

The increase in the amount of tagging in the suburb has prompted police to launch Operation Blackwood at and around North Melbourne train station. Police have swarmed the precinct twice in the past month and issued seven $587 on-the-spot fines for possession of spray cans without a valid excuse. Officers have also confiscated 120 aerosol cans, including one car-load containing 70 cans.

In the past year, the southern capital of Melbourne has edged out rival Sydney as having the biggest amount of lettable space in the central business district.

Some of the new space has come from the redevelopment of existing buildings, as well as the new Docklands area included in statistics as part of the city.
