After an investigation, police found he was the same person responsible for nearly 90 similar incidents dating back to November 2015.

“It’s very important that people report graffiti. We know that it happens and it doesn’t always get reported. In this case it was, and that’s why we were able to lay so many charges,” Saskatoon police spokesperson Kelsie Fraser said.
