Constable paints picture of goodwill

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A police officer swapped his patrol car for a paintbrush to help a woman whose home was targeted by vandals over the shelter-in-place regulations.

Anthony Bartley, a parish constable, stepped in after graffiti was scrawled on the wall of a house in Pembroke.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman explained: “Anthony has been dealing with a wilful damage report of some graffiti sprayed on a wall in the neighbourhood.

“The homeowner had gone out and bought paint to cover it up, but wasn't in a position to do the work themselves, so would have to wait for the shelter-in-place to be lifted.

“She was sick of looking at the graffiti so the parish constables volunteered to take care of it.”

Mr Bartley was joined by colleagues Arthur Dill and Roseanne Mienzer, who also helped to cover up the graffiti.
