One of the members of the organized graffiti group 'Rong Crew' now has a criminal record.

Shane Mills, 21, pleaded guilty in provincial court on Thursday to being present when Canada Post mail boxes were sprayed in Mount Pearl last June.

Mills also took photos for the group when they sprayed a bridge which is owned by the province.

Judge Pamela Goulding gave Mills a suspended sentence and six months probation.

Mills has been caught before, but at the time was given an absolute discharge.

Two other members of the group still have cases before the courts.
