Bourne

Suspect charged with five offences over ‘Bob’ graffiti

A male has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after Bourne businesses, cemeteries and walls were vandalised with the word ‘Bob’.

As previously reported, a cemetery in the Southern area of Bourne was among the locations vandalised after someone defaced grave stones and the shelter at the same place.

Someone’s work van has also been vandalised with the same word.

The graffiti also appeared in other areas of the Lincolnshire market town with one poster in the Facebook group Bourne Rural Lincs, Lincolnshire (Group) saying “Headstart nursery, Jewsons & a car along Great Northern Gardens can be added to the list of properties these morons are defacing.”
