The latest pictures of a graffiti gang defacing property in Penarth. Anyone who recognises faces in the photos is asked to contact the police

South Wales Police have issued more infra-red night-time photographs of graffiti vandals mindlessly defacing private and public property in Penarth.

Police say they have already had an excellent response to the photographs they issued a few days ago of youths in a back lane off Redlands Road which has been subjected to a number of attacks by graffiti gangs.

The latest set of photographs were all taken at night by infra-red CCTV cameras . The areas of white on the photo are those which are emitting heat – which is why eyes appear to “glow” in the dark.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police quoting the same reference number as the earlier incidents 1700080812. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    Masters of disguise eh. Now when they’re caught- will they have to pay to make good and do say a months community service cleaning graffiti and litter. Or be given a big PC hug.

  2. Marcus says:

    Where’s “Matty” to brag about knowing who they are?

  3. Barry boy says:

    Hug a hoodie. Wasn’t that your leader Cameron’s campaign? 😂

  4. BigPooPski says:

  5. MATTY LEE says:

    Sorry the bloke with the beautiful eyes and small chin is my boyfriend and I ain’t about to snitch on him am I?
    He was tagging how much he luvs me on every wall in Penarth.

    • Gina says:

      Hi Matty, but does he “luv” you enough that if you asked him to stop, do you think he would? : )

    • Frank Evans says:

      Matty you lead an interesting life. Go on ask him to stop cause a boy friend behind bars ain’t much use.

  6. Ann Other says:

    Surely, the local secondary schools would identify them in two minutes? Do the police send the photos to them?

  7. Chris Shamb says:

    CAGE these SCUMBAGS!

  8. J. Hill says:

    Tie them to lamp-posts and shoot them dead, with placards around their necks stating that they were executed for being trash who made the environment as ugly as themselves. Leave them there for a week, let the seagulls and foxes have a go at their useless corpses.
