Town of Jackson #tagged

By on May 9, 2013

graffiti 4JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Graffiti artists, known as vandals to some, have been particularly active in the past few months. JH Weekly’sBest of…” issue noted one prominent piece on the crumbling retaining wall between Storage Stables and the Teton Gables Motel. Robyn Vincent called it a brazen work of art.graffiti 3

The Jackson Police Department has about had enough of the public displays of insurrection. Recent vandalism, including the climbing rock at Phil Baux park (again), are causing thousands of dollars damage to private and public entities. JPD advises any business or residence that is hit to report the incident immediately and then deter future graffiti strikes by removing the art promptly if they can.

“Studies have shown that taking proactive measures such as immediately removing graffiti after it is reported has a positive effect in reducing future incidents of graffiti,” Lt. Cole Nethercott said.

graffiti 2Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of any persons responsible for the rash of in-town tagging. Call Crimestoppers at 733-5148. You don’t have to give your name.

    These taggers need to get caught late at night by a couple of Wyoming shitkickers instead of the cops.

    I think what is being done is wrong, but this town finds all kinds of other stupid ways to waste tax money why don’t you just make a place that can be tagged and then start a annual contest for the best art.
    It will keep it in one place and provide an outlet for those doing the tagging

    Not true. The thrill, if not the point of tagging, is to sneak it onto a place others find in appropriate, then split.

    nobody is tapping their inner picasso with the climbing rock desecration. that’s just wrong and inconsiderate and expensive and criminal.

    Don’t much care if someone tags the climbing wall – may look like crap but so does the Center for the Arts, and Broadway during the winter, and all the TOJ’s signs, etc.
