BKB’s trail of graffiti

DE-TAGGING: First Ave residents Lee Stewart and Matthew Stevens attempt to remove graffiti sprayed on Saturday night.

INSTEAD of enjoying a lazy Sunday morning, some Sawtell residents spent theirs cleaning up the aftermath of a graffiti spree.

The tag "BKB" was scrawled in fluorescent orange paint on at least two houses on First Ave during the course of Saturday night.

More of BKB's work was sprayed on the bitumen at the intersection with 18th Ave.

First Ave resident Matthew Stevens was unimpressed with the mess he was left to clean.

"It's the first time I've had it happen. It's not a job you want to be doing on a Sunday morning," he said.

Mr Stevens said he didn't hear or see anything during the night to indicate his house was under graffiti attack.

Lee Stewart was using her elbow grease on Monday to remove the tag from her sister's home.

"She wasn't impressed, it made her feel violated. I suppose they've got nothing better to do."

Ms Stewart was offered plenty of help by neighbours and passers-by during her scrubbing session.

"A man who works on the roads stopped and gave me the tip to use Aeroguard to get the paint off, so that was good to know."

Mr Stevens said the graffiti didn't end in their neighbourhood. There was also a truck sprayed with the same tag in Hulberts Rd.
