REDDING, Calif. - Tagging troubles spreading across Redding and it’s getting bigger.

Several tagged and graffiti covered areas are on Dana Drive and in Downtown Redding. Polcie say, a lot of those areas are private property.

They also say, if the tags ae so significant and big it can take a toll on their equipment. During one cleanup, Redding Police say the graffiti was so deep it damaged their pressure washer.

People in Redding say, it shouldn’t be just up to the police or city to clean.

“It makes me sad when I see it,” said local business owner Carie Fisher. “But I know if we are not complaining and doing something about it, all of us together, that's really what it takes is action.”

If the marks are on city property, the police department will clean up the tags.
They also partner with other businesses to help erase the graffiti. Redding Police have a unit dedicated to eradicating graffiti and tags across town.

Just last week officers say they cleaned up 15 sites with graffiti.
