One vehicle had its licence plate blacked out while others were drawn on with wavy lines across windows and side panels.  

Police had been hunting the offender behind the October 22-23 spree, as well a rampage the previous week when a number of cars were tagged in the same area and Smithfield. 

A 24-year-old man was arrested following a search of a Bass Hill home on Friday morning and taken to Fairfield police station to assist police with their inquiries.

Victor Fenech, a member of the Rotary Club of Liverpool Greenway and the Graffiti Removal Day co-ordinator for Fairfield, Liverpool and Bankstown, told Newscorp preventative measures needed to be put in places. 

‘Restricting the sale of spray cans so they don’t fall into the hands of the wrong people, particularly juveniles, is probably warranted,’ Mr Fenech said.
