Mounties are looking for a graffiti tagger who is marking up Sun Peaks.

Kamloops Rural RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said the suspect has been tagging  (spray painting) signs, posts and electrical boxes throughout  Sun Peaks.

Aird said Kamloops Mounties contacted the Vancouver Graffiti Task Force and learned the same person was tagging in that city,  with several  reports of damage in the month of May 2014 and one act of vandalism on Jan. 9 of this year.

Mounties have also enlisted the help of the Kamloops Graffiti Task Forces to help identify the tagger.

More than 100 incidents of vandalism were reported in Sun Peaks between Feb. 1 and Feb. 12, 2015.

Aird said graffiti has been found on signs,  posts, dumpsters, power boxes and private property, all of which needs time and money to clean up.

The suspect tagger uses the handle “GLITCH” or “GLITTER.”

Police are asking again anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222 -8477.
