Catch a tagger, get some cash

first_imgWEST COVINA – The City Council has approved a unique program designed to catch graffiti vandals and reward citizens who help police arrest them. A $100 cash reward will be handed to residents who turn in anyone caught marking up block walls, bridges, culverts or buildings in West Covina, officials said. The City Council adopted the program on Tuesday. The money will be kept in cold, hard cash at the police station and given away when an arrest is made, which will keep anti-graffiti mercenaries from having to wait until there is a conviction. “Graffiti in our community has become so prevalent that in many instances someone must have seen the crime being committed, but chose not to call the police,” said police Lt. Mark Dettor in a written statement. The program begins next week, officials said. “I think the reward deal is fabulous,” resident Lloyd Johnson said. “Money talks just like everything else. It pays off most of the time.” Mayor Mike Touhey also praised the program. “This does a great job,” Touhey said. “If we get them, we’re going to pay you.” Police officials said the reward payoff will be immediate. Within an hour of calling in a report of vandalism, residents can call back to the police station to find out what happened. If an arrest was made, the caller will get the money. No questions asked. Anonymity is guaranteed. Not everyone is convinced the program will be effective. “I think it’s going to be very difficult for that to be successful,” said resident Jeremy Infranca. “It’s not like a resident is going to run out of his house to grab the nearest tagger.” [email protected] (626) 962-8811 Ext. 2717 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Sensex tanks over 450 points Nifty finishes below 11000mark

first_imgMumbai: Equity benchmark BSE Sensex tumbled 463 points while the NSE Nifty closed below the key 11,000-mark on Thursday amid heavy selling in metal, banking and tech stocks. Lacklustre economic data, unabated foreign fund outflows and disappointing quarterly earnings also dented market sentiment, traders said. After a weak opening, the 30-share BSE Sensex plunged more than 750 points in late-afternoon trade, before finally ending at 37,018.32, down by 462.80 points or 1.23 per cent.

In the Sensex pack, Vedanta took the biggest hit (5.55 per cent), followed by Tata Motors, SBI, Yes Bank, Bharti Airtel and Infosys, which lost up to 4.50 per cent. On the other hand, Maruti, Power Grid, Reliance, Bajaj Auto, Hero MotoCorp, HUL and NTPC ended in the green, spurting up to 1.86 per cent. Overall investor sentiment was weak after official data released after market hours on Wednesday showed that growth of eight core industries dropped to 0.2 per cent in June, mainly due to contraction in oil-related sectors as well as cement production.

On the global front, the US Federal Reserve reduced the benchmark lending rate by 25 basis points to 2.0-2.25 per cent on Wednesday for the first time in more than a decade. However, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said the move was not the beginning of a long series of rate cuts, sending global markets lower. Major automobile manufacturers on Thursday reported disappointing July sales data. In addition, subdued corporate earnings also continued to weigh on the markets, traders said. Foreign investors sold shares worth Rs 1,497.07 crore on a net basis on Wednesday, as per provisional data with stock exchanges. Elsewhere in Asia, Shanghai Composite Index, Hang Seng, and Kospi ended in the red, while Nikkei edged higher. Equities in Europe were trading mixed in their early sessions.
