POLICE have arrested a man in connection with a spate of grafitti vandalism across Chester.
Officers arrested a 33-year-old man from Bromborough in the city centre on Saturday morning following a lengthy search for the culprit behind the DAKA taggings at locations across the city.
The man, who has not been named, was interviewed by officers and bailed until January and put under orders not to enter the county of Cheshire in that time.
Inspector Darren Griffiths, of Chester Inner Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said: “We can confirm we have made an arrest in relation to the DAKA grafitti that has been appearing across the city.
“The individual has been bailed following interview and will appear at the police station again in January.
“This spate of grafitti has caused a lot of interest and we are pleased to have finally made a breakthrough and made an arrest in relation to these offences.”
The DAKA tagging has cost taxpayers thousands of pounds, with clean up operations required following the grafitti’s appearance on Chester’s historic Rows.
The tagging has appeared at countless locations city wide, including near the amphitheatre and at several locations on Liverpool
