RED BLUFF, Calif. - People in Red Bluff are fed up with the increasing amount of graffiti popping up around town.

Police say this is a common problem around town and that there is not much they can do about it.

The stretch of wall that was tagged is located across the Walmart in Red Bluff, near a busy shopping center.

Action News Now spoke to shoppers in the area and they say it's an unfortunate thing that the city of Red Bluff faces.

"It makes me feel uncomfortable," says Christy Schmid who lives in Red Bluff. "It's uncomfortable that it's all over and it just makes me feel just uncomfortable...it's ditry, I don't like it."

Another woman says it concerns her because her son works at a store nearby.

"My son works at Big Five and it takes two employees to take out the trash, so it's very dangerous for the kids to be out...what you see now is not as pleasing as what it used to be," says Lesli Hagen, a resident of Red Bluff.

Action News Now spoke to a woman who owns a dry cleaning business in the shopping area and says she is flat out disgusted.

"It's a consistent problem," says Kim Berry, owner of Crown Cleaners in Red Bluff. "We have to call the manager and they pay someone to come out and cover it up which all the business owners have to pay for that...it's almost weekly. If you take a look back here, it's just a hodgepodge of covered up paint spots because of the tagging."

If you have any information about who is behind the vandalism, call the Red Bluff Police Department.
