Taggers spend community service hours scrubbing graffiti off walls


Two teen boys who were caught in April spray-painting the former primary school building in London, 20 S. Walnut St., spent Monday scrubbing off the graffiti. The alternative punishment was an agreement between city officials and the Madison County Juvenile Court, according to Bill Long, who supervises the city’s community service program. The teens, age 15 and 17, stood on a lower level roof in order to reach the upper exterior wall. They were apprehended after a citizen called to tip off London police officers, according to Chief Glenn Nicol. Long described the teens as “good kids” who he “hoped to never see again in the program.” The two have been charged with criminal damaging, a second-degree misdemeanor. The teens both had clean records, an officer said.
