Three charged with vandalising public transport ticket machines

Police on Thursday charged three individuals for vandalising machines used to stamp and validate tickets on the Athens public transport system.

The three were arrested by a DIAS police patrol investigating the ticket-machine vandalism in the early hours of Wednesday, when they were spotted writing graffiti on the walls of a school in Peristeri. During a stop and search, police found a note with bus timetables in a bag belonging to one of the three.

The three were arrested and led before a public prosecutor.
