The Village of Cumberland is asking for help to put an end to graffiti in the community after a recent tagging.

Cooks Restaurant on the corner of Penrith Ave and Third St. was the target of vandalism on the night of Jan. 1.

“Looks like somebody couldn’t contain their artistic impulses last night,” read a post on the Cooks Restaurant Facebook page, posted on Jan. 2. “We’re a bit disappointed to say the least.”

The Village of Cumberland also posted a photo of the graffitied building on their website and is requesting that anyone with information report it to Comox Valley Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

“Reporting graffiti helps track taggers and helps reduce the negative impact and costs on the community,” read the post on the Village of Cumberland website.

Graffiti is a criminal offense and taggers could be subject to a $200 ticket under the Village’s Nuisance Bylaw.

The Village encourages property owners who have been targeted with graffiti to report it to the Village and remove it as soon as possible to reduce the chance of their property being tagged again.

Residents can also report graffiti to the Village office by calling 250-336-2291 or emailing
