(SUDBURY, ON) – On Tuesday, July 10, 2018, the Greater Sudbury Police Service received a call regarding a mischief to the water tower downtown that had taken place the weekend prior where the word “SKODEN” had been painted across the word “SUDBURY”.
Members of the Community Response Unit (CRU) canvassed the area for information on and video surveillance footage of the incident with no luck.
Through an anonymous tip, police received information that an art event had taken place in the Greater Sudbury area where a participant painted an image of the water tower with the word “SKODEN” across it.
Officers contacted the organizer of the event and were able to obtain a photo of the painting, as well as, a photo and the name of the artist.
Through additional investigation, officers developed reasonable grounds to believe that they identified the person responsible for the graffiti on the water tower.
This morning, Tuesday, November 27th, 2018, at 8:00 am, 31-year-old, Isaac Weber attended Police Headquarters and turned himself in.
He has been charged with Mischief Under $5,000 and attended Bail Court this morning to answer to the charge.
The damage to the water tower was estimated at approximately $2,850.00.
The Greater Sudbury Police Service would like to extend a big thank you to all of the community members who contacted us with information related this matter. Police would also like to recognize the great work done by our Community Response Unit through this investigation.
