Last night TPD responded to a number of calls involving vandalism from paintballs. Damage including broken windows in the Royal Oak area.
TPD has returned today to canvas the area for possible video.
Paintball guns (Also referred to as Markers) come in many styles and are usually identified by a ‘hopper’ on top that contains the actual paintball (usually a 17mm gelatin shell filled with paint) and a tank that holds either CO2 or Air. These paintballs usually travel at 30fps on unmodified guns and can fire between 5 and 30 or more rounds per second. Because they work off compressed gases, there is not much noise associated with the marker. Some will freeze the paintballs to cause more damage.
