Timaru police are investigating a graffiti crimewave after about 20 places around the city were vandalised at the weekend.

Police said they believe all the graffiti was the work of one tagger, and they're following strong lines of inquiry in the case.

Sites targeted included the Royal Arcade and other spots around the central business district, which were marked with the letters "KMO" in black paint.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 03 687 9808.
