Outrage as graffiti vandals target entire street

SEVERAL Bundaberg streets been targeted in a long line of vandalism as residents awoke to graffiti-smothered fences.

Branyan St is now connected not only by street name, but a continuous line of white spray paint.

The incident has outraged the community and comes as the latest act in a string of vandalism across the region.

Branyan St home owner Annette Boles had only just finished painting her fence when she awoke to find it ruined.

"I've spent hundreds of dollars painting the fence," she said. Ms Boles believed the culprits should be put to community service.

"They can use their skills to come and paint my fence properly," she said.

Ms Boles said vandalism was a disappointing blow as the purpose of having her fence painted was so she could further her home business.

"Vandalism diminishes the motivation and enthusiasm of people to start businesses in Bundaberg," Ms Boles said.

Just days earlier, Bargara mum of seven Rennay Toms was plagued by some other late night troublemakers.

Ms Tom witnessed an act she could barely believe was unravelling before her eyes.

The Moodies Rd resident said she initially monitored a group of teens as they walked down her street kicking light poles. "And the next thing we see they were stringing hoses up between light poles," she said.

Mrs Toms said she and her husband cottoned on to the dangerous prank the teens were planning and scared them away.

"I hope they catch the kids doing it. It's scary and could have caused a serious accident," Mrs Toms said.
