This section considers the offending engaged in where one person damages the property of another.
The most obvious example of this type of offending is smashing a window or graffiti.
Property damage offences cover simple matters such as straight forward damage e.g. scratching a car through to damage by fire and damage by explosives. These offences are viewed more seriously depending on how the damage is caused and the danger that may be caused.
There is a specific Act, the Graffiti Control Act that deals with graffiti and prosecutions under this Act can result, not only in fines and imprisonment but also the suspension of driving licences.
