Vandalism has spiked in the City of Swift Current.

   Acting Staff Sargent Al MacDonell says there were 46 incidents from January to March in 2006, compared with 68 so far this year.

   MacDonell says while Vandalism can refer to any destructive act, this spike is related to the rash of graffiti, as the number of graffiti cases is directly proportionate to the spike.

   One man from Medicine Hat will appear in court next month after he was caught spray-painting the overpass at Highways 1 and 4 earlier this month.
