Several homes, garages, sheds and vehicles were vandalized in Espanola.

Constable Marie Ford says officers responded to reports of spray paint on properties along Tudhope and Barber Streets and Mead Boulevard in Espanola.

Ford adds defacing property is a crime under the Criminal Code and any person with information is asked to call police or Crimestoppers.

The following day, a local woman, Amber Rose, led a contingent of volunteers to clean up the properties with paint and equipment donated by Espanola Home Hardware.
