Moncton, New Brunswick – A Riverview man has been sentenced, after pleading guilty to four counts of mischief for painting graffiti on public property earlier this year.
On November 21, 2016, 20-year-old Jacob Edward Bradley appeared in Moncton Provincial Court and was sentenced to 18 months of probation and 50 hours of community service. He will also have to pay a total of $1,375 in restitution for the cost of removing his graffiti, and a fine of $400.
Jacob Bradley was arrested in June 2016, along with two other men, who believed to be collectively responsible for more than $20,000 in graffiti damage done to business and government buildings in Dieppe, Moncton and Riverview since 2014.
“These individuals were arrested in connection with more than 150 complaints of graffiti, each one causing damage and costing the owner of the building money to remove it or paint over it,” said Cst. Chris Fader. “It’s important that business owners and people in the community report incidents of graffiti to police, so that a record of the damage can be obtained, which can help police identify those responsible.”
Twenty-year-old Nathan Stewart Finnamore is charged with 16 counts of mischief, and 20-year-old Callum Andrew George Grant is charged with 64 counts of mischief, in connection with the same investigation.
