THE golden spray-painter in Rincon de la Victoria could face a fine of up to €3,000 if caught.

Over the past month several items of street furniture around the town have been illegally given a golden makeover by a mystery sprayer.

Mayor Francisco Salado called on the town’s citizens to locate the perpetrator two weeks ago.

And now a council spokesman has announced that the person behind the spray can could face a fine ranging between €1,501 and €3,000.

“These unauthorised pieces are considered a ‘very serious offence, according to the municipal laws,” the spokesman said.

There have so far been four reported cases of the golden sprayer: a bench next to the tourism office, a paper-stand in Plaza de la Iglesia, a bin in Plaza de la Constitucion and a swing in the promenade’s park.
