ACT Police are investigating a string of graffiti attacks across Canberra’s northern suburbs and Fyshwick.

The image of a Dinosaur appear on traffic lights and signs, bus stops, fences, overpasses, buildings, and shops.

Often accompanied by a heart and a message, as well as the tag ‘Karm’

Detective Sergeant Elizabeth Swain from City Police Station said this damage to property is unacceptable and illegal.

“While those responsible might think the imagery is harmless and potentially even heart-warming, these incidents still amount to property damage, which is a criminal offence,” Detective Sergeant Swain said.

Police are now trying to identify the person responsible.

“I would encourage those responsible for these incidents to make themselves known to police before they get a knock at their door.” Detective Sergeant Swain added.


Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
