3/23/2017 - GRAFFITI ALERT: TAKING BACK OUR COMMUNITY - REWARD OFFERED! - UPDATED 4/21/2017
Vandals have again trespassed the culvert located at the entrance to Pualani Estates near the Puapua`anui and Queen Ka`ahumanu Highway intersection. It appears vandals may have used the hidden entry way leading from the ballpark to access the culvert via the underground tunnels. In addition to the bulkheads being spray painted, animal carcasses and other debris were also found.
Above: Director Pat Van Every inspects graffiti on bulkheads
On March 21, Board of Directors and other community members reviewed the extensive damage vandals continue to impose on our beautiful community. Some of the graffiti can be seen while driving up Puapua`anui Street with most of it on the southern bulkhead of the culvert. It is obvious the graffiti is rapidly increasing to other areas.
Such flagrant acts of vandalism hurts all homeowners and residents who make Pualani Estates their home. We as a community should not tolerate such behavior. We must not let such blight creep into our community. It is offensive as it is illegal. We are asking for the public’s help in identifying the culprits responsible for these malicious acts so they can be reported to law enforcement officials.
Anyone with any information about the graffiti (including the tagger's "signature") can call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers in Kona at 329-8181. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential. Residents may also contact any PEK Board Member via email. There will be a $150 reward to a person who provides information leading to arrest and conviction of person/persons defacing HOA common area.
We must take back our community and not let vandals destroy the places that we care for and live in!
Here are 3 strategies for combating graffiti in our neighborhood.
- Remove it as quickly as possible. Rapid response is the most effective way to reduce the frequency of tagging.
- Photograph tags before you remove them. Local law-enforcement agencies can bring charges against repeat offenders who leave identifying clues in their artwork.
- Get involved in your community's delinquency-prevention efforts.
