SUDBURY — Greater Sudbury police say that they have made an arrest in connection to the vandalism of the Sudbury water tower four months ago.
The painted slang “Skoden” was brandished on the water tower in early July overtop of “Sudbury.” Since, police scoured the area for information and surveillance footage of the incident but were unsuccessful in finding a culprit.
However, acting on an anonymous tip the officers contacted organizers of a local art event where a participating artist was seen painting an image of the water tower with the graffiti on it. Officers developed reasonable grounds to believe that the artist painting the image was the one responsible for the graffiti.
Early Tuesday morning, a 31 year-old Sudbury man turned himself in and was charged of mischief under $5000 as the damage to the tower itself nears $3000.
