Idiot paints Graffeti on fences at Heritage in Barnegat.

Gee, the parents of the idiot that painted ugly graffiti on the fences that line exit 67 North of the GSP must really be proud of his "artistic" ability. The Black spray paint defaces three sections of White Vinyl Fence. 
 A psychotherapist said a typical profile for this type of graffeti would be a white male, early teen, poor performer in school, from a single parent home.

The Heritage Community is at the intersection of West Bay Ave. and The Northbound GSP exit ramp, across West Bay Ave. from Settlers Landing.

If you have any information please report it to the Barnegat police.

I live in Heritage Bay and while I don't like what happened to our fence, I certainly would not attack the parent or parents of whoever did it. They may be home pulling their hair out wondering what to do as well - especially as your "psychotherapist" states, it may be a single parent home. The best of up bringing can go right out the window when kids go out into this awful world they live in. Maybe the writer of this article was lucky enough to have a child who walked the right path, but unfortunately not all kids do. So let's not be so ready to blame parents who were not so lucky. By the way - graffiti is spelled differently throughout this article; the fence is beige, not white; the name of the development is Heritage Bay (as opposed to Heritage Point) and words are capitalized that shouldn't be. Was the writer a poor performer in school?????

Sounds to me like you are the parent of this child, or friend of the parents who have the "child" who defaced hundreds of dollars of other people's property because he was bored. I apologize that my original quick post was not up to your standards. Please also excuse my poor observation of the true color of the fence. Through tinted windows, while driving at dusk, the fence appeared white, rather than beige. Mea culpa. The fence, which still has not been reconditioned, makes a significant statement about the Township of Barnegat when people leave the Northbound GSP at exit 67. It gives people the impression that Barnegat is a "Ghetto Town". The person who defaced this property should be made to correct the problem, and be given additional Community Service to perform. Then he won't be so bored and have so much free time. And oh, please let me know if I misspelled any more words, made any typos, or capitalized any words I shouldn't have. I would wouldn't want to upset any of the fine people who support the "art" of Tagging and Graffiti.

This is the 2nd time it's been painted. The BPD were called and they said its the State Police's problem, even though Heritage Bay's fence is in Barnegat. A PD should be able to indentify the culprit through his unique tags and from local informants. This is an ongoing problem which probably is being done by local kids.

I don't think it is a state PD problem...We pay enough to the barnegat cops that they can handle this...they are bored too

This fence which is on Barnegat property has been vandalized many times . It has been kicked in and painted with graffiti. The BPD hasn't put any effort into solving this problem. They want to say its a state police problem. It's a Barnegat problem and the residents of Heritage Bay want some action because the fence cost $78,000 and costs extra when its vandalized.
