Arrest made in connection to hateful graffiti spree in Waterloo which saw 14 cars tagged: police |

A 21-year-old man has been arrested in connection to a recent graffiti spree in the Uptown District which saw 14 cars tagged with hate-motivated symbols and writing, according to Waterloo Regional Police.

They say the man, who is from Waterloo, has been charged with mischief under $5,000.

The cars were tagged at around 6 a.m. on Aug. 21.

They are just one of more than a dozen hate-motivated incidents which occurred across the region in August.

All of the vandalism prompted the City of Waterloo to release a statement condemning the graffiti which was popping in Kitchener, Cambridge and Waterloo.
