Police made four arrests on Friday they hope will put an end to a “rampant graffiti spree” in the city’s west end.

Graffiti markings known as “tags” cropped up in the Queensway and Islington Ave. area between December 2007 and March 2008. The tags “Cahoots,” “Riff Raff,” “Get Loose,” and “GYS” were inked, spray painted and etched on property in the area, police said. Walls, signs and vehicles were targeted.

Police believe the tags are only used by these individuals and have been seen elsewhere in the GTA. Ryan McCarney, Sterling Healey, Shane Tyrer and Danny Surjanac were arrested in Uxbridge with help from Durham Regional Police. They appeared in a downtown court Saturday morning
