Police were called at 7.55am yesterday, Monday February 15, following reports that two women were in the process of spraying graffiti on council buildings in Ipswich.
Two women were arrested and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
Tina Smith, 40, of The Street, Woodbridge, and Susan Hadley, 65, of Tuddenham Road, Ipswich, were both later charged with criminal damage.
