Footage of graffiti on trains led police to charge three men with multiple offences.

An off-duty police officer notified police when he saw the men acting suspiciously in an East Perth park yesterday morning.

Police searched the group’s vehicles and allegedly uncovered digital recording devices with footage of the trains being vandalised.
