A graffiti vandal in Queenstown was nabbed defacing private property after posting photographs of his work on Facebook.

Senior Constable Chris Blackford, of Queenstown, said the owner of a container on the Lower Shotover delta reported the graffiti to police on Tuesday. The container owner managed to track down the graffiti artist after being alerted to pictures on social media.

"He was stupid enough to post pictures of himself on Facebook tagging," Mr Blackford said.

The man, 18, was not charged but was required to clean the container.
