Shasta County Sheriff's deputies this week went to war on gang graffiti in the City of Shasta Lake.
A clean up was conducted targeting several vacant buildings and areas that were vandalized with graffiti from what authorities describe as "local juvenile delinquents".
Deputies used an inmate work crew to cover up the graffiti with paint that had been turned into the City of Redding transfer station for disposal.
Ace Hardware Express on Cascade Blvd also donated painting supplies and equipment for the project.
