A few early-morning G20 announcements

Several downtown banks were tagged with anti-G20 graffiti early this morning, just hours before security officials hold a press conference to announce traffic restrictions and security plans for the summit.

The Star's Madeleine White reports that one man has been taken into custody for the vandalism, which police describe as nothing more than a case of "simple mischief." Some photos taken by Twitter user @LateNightCam can be seen here.

Meanwhile, the Integrated Security Unit will hold their G20 press conference at 10:30 a.m. at Toronto Police headquarters on College St.

Security officials are expected to finally release the security perimeters for the summit so check back at thestar.com for updates later in the day.
