Palestine City Council approves youth curfew

PALESTINE, TX (KLTV) -

Residents under the age of 17 in an East Texas city will soon be under a curfew.

The Palestine City Council unanimously voted in favor of the youth curfew after a recent increase in graffiti around the city.

City officials say numerous buildings in and around downtown have been tagged with graffiti multiple times.

The new curfew goes into effect April 2, 2012, and will be in place Sundays through Thursdays from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from midnight to 6 a.m.
