Lincolnshire Police are investigating multiple incidents of vandalism that occurred in Tattershall earlier this week - and they would like to speak to a person who was seen on CCTV in the area.
The vandalism occurred overnight on May 14-15, and involved graffiti that affected at least three businesses in the village’s market place - the Post Office, the Lincolnshire Co-Operative food store, and the Fortescue Arms pub.
Graffiti was also sprayed onto the bus shelter on the main road, and the bridge between Tattershall and Coningsby.
Most of the graffiti tags appear to say ‘VANDAL’, while one of the says ‘VANDAL RLUES’ (sic).
Photographs of the vandalism were shared on a public Facebook group by Lee Alderson, and his appeal has been shared by local residents.
Mr Alderson said: “Had a couple of names come through of possible look-a-likes, but nothing decisive. These will be passed onto the police for investigation. “If anything comes of them you can be sure this poor artist that clearly can’t spell will be named & shamed!”
Lex Hiles commented: “What an idiot! To make it worse they haven’t even got the ability to spell rules correctly.”
Tina Forster added: “Attention-seeking idiot and so unoriginal. Five mins of fame.....in Tattershall...duh!”
Police would like to speak to a person who was spotted on CCTV in the early hours of May 15, who they believe may be able to assist with their investigation.
The person is described as wearing a rucksack, and having a scarf and goggles obscuring their face.
If you are the person in the CCTV image, or if you know their identity, contact Lincolnshire Police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident number 111 of May 15.
