Chatwood Graffiti Goon
A 19-year-old Chatswood man who should have known better will face Hornsby Local Court on November 29 after being stopped by Police.
At 11:45 pm last Wednesday, Police patrolled Chatswood West when they noticed the teenager wearing a single glove.
Local police have charged a 19-year-old with several offences including “Possess Graffiti Implement”.
They quickly worked out it was not Michael Jackson.
“While driving along The Fairway, police noticed the 19-year-old male walking along with a glove on one hand,” a spokesman told Mosman Collective.
“Police will allege that as they drove past the male, he started running in the opposite direction.
“Officers stopped the male a short time later and had cause to search him.”
The man will appear at Hornsby Local Court on November 19.
It is alleged a knife was located in the teen’s left pocket, as well as nine different coloured spray paint cans.
The Chatswood man was issued with a Field Court Attendance Notice for the offences of “Custody of a knife in a public place” and “Possess graffiti implement with intent to contravene section 4 (2)”.
