Police investigate graffiti at the airport

Police are investigating a further case of vandalism in which the word “Isis” was scrawled across a vehicle's dashboard at the airport.

The report comes just over a week after more than 30 officers were tasked to investigate a spate of graffiti vandalism in Hamilton.

Vandals sprayed phrases referring to the extremist group aross Government buildings, cafes and broadcasting offices.

The latest example of what police have described as “wilful damage” came to the attention of police last Friday at LF Wade International.

The graffiti written with a black marker on the dashboard of a vehicle alluded to the presence of the extremist Islamist terrorist group Isis. However, a police spokesman said that the public can be assured that there is little to be alarmed about.

“Neither the information from the public nor our own intelligence systems have raised any particular concerns in this regard,” he said.

He added: “We are appealing to the community to play their part by simply passing on any information that may assist us in identifying the person or persons responsible for this minor act of vandalism.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on 295-0011.

They can also call the confidential Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
