Olds RCMP - Update On Graffiti Investigation

Black or white spray paint was used by culprits as graffiti was applied to buildings located primarily in the Uptowne Olds area and at the SportsComplex, according to Olds RCMP.

Olds, Alberta ~ Police have concluded their investigation into Graffitti that had been reported in and around the town of Olds on Wednesday, April 17th of this year.

Olds RCMP say the public was instrumental in providing evidence to link a youth to the crimes. 

After considering all the evidence and in consultation with the youth and the youth's parents police are referring the matter to the Youth Justice Committee. 

The YJC is a program that provides an alternative to formal court proceedings when dealing with young people alleged to have committed certain offences. 

According to police, Youth Justice Committees involve trained community members who meet with persons harmed, accused young people and their parents/caregivers to determine an appropriate and meaningful way for the young person to make amends for their actions.
