Victim of Graffiti Vandalism  
  • Do not attempt to apprehend the suspect. 
  • Call 775.575.3383 to have a Sheriff’s Officer come to your house and take a report if the suspects are seen, known, or if there is a witness.
  • Get a good description of the suspect and vehicle involved, and the location. 
  • If you have no information pertinent to the crime, you should still report it, so that the Sheriff can take photos of the graffiti vandalism for future prosecution.

Stop Graffiti
  • Form a Neighborhood Watch. For more information, contact the Lyon County Sheriff’s Dept at 775.575.3350, or visit the National Sheriff’s Association website.
  • Make sure your child is not a graffiti vandal.
  • Report it and work with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office if you know of someone guilty of graffiti vandalism.

Remove Graffiti 
  • Keep paint readily available.
  • Use matching paint so you don't leave a canvas for them.
  • Use methyl ethyl ketone on glass, or previously painted metal surfaces.
  • Use graffiti remover on glass, unpainted metal surfaces, or brick or block walls, you must scrub with soap and water, too, and always wear rubber gloves.
