Graffiti sprayed on the landmark City Hall in Hamilton highlighted the need for a crackdown on urban disorder, a spokesman for the corporation said yesterday.

Dwayne Caines, the secretary and chief operating officer for the City of Hamilton, said that the vandalism “yet again shows the work that must be done to manage and deal with antisocial behaviour in the city”.

He was speaking after a vandal used green spray-paint to write “Legal Weed” across the front of the building.

Mr Caines said that the vandalism, which took place in broad daylight on Sunday afternoon, had been captured by CCTV cameras.

He added: “We have the identity of the suspect as well.”

A spokesman for the Bermuda Police Service said that a man had been arrested in connection with the incident.

Mr Caines said that City Hall was so metimes hit by “small acts” of vandalism which were dealt with by council officials or with the help of police.

He added that the city employed a full-time painter, who painted over the graffiti.
