Graffiti vandalism has hit the Fort recently and police are urging victims to report it.
 
A string of stencilled graffiti has popped up on numerous parts of the city from the Heritage Precinct to neighbourhoods in the south side.
 
The crook is using what some are calling a "sloppy" stencil to paint a graphic along with different phrases underneath.
 
"I do know someone had posted something [on social media] but hadn't reported it to us," said Fort Saskatchewan RCMP Constable Janice Shoepp. "We really want to encourage people to report the incidents to us."
 
Shoepp also recommended property owners take plenty of photos of the damage.
 
The graffiti is showing up on everything from statues to garage doors.
 
In 2016, RCMP received 10 reports of graffiti vandalism. So far in 2017, six have been reported.
 
If anyone has information that could help police catch those responsible, call the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP at (780) 992-6100 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477.
