Police pictures of the graffiti tags (Tweed Byron LAC Facebook page).

Tweed-Byron police have posted pictures of large graffiti tags which were brazenly sprayed over four buses inside a depot which had been broken into at Tweed Heads earlier this week.

Police say the large tags suggest the offenders were inside the Surfside Bus depot at Ourimbah Road, Tweed Heads, for ‘quite some time’.

Police say they posted the pictures in the hope members of the community may recognise the tags or may know who is responsible for them.

They urge anyone with information on them to contact Tweed Heads police station on 07 5536 0999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 (privacy assured).
