HURRICANE – Police are asking for the public’s help in finding out who spray-painted graffiti at a Hurricane school and park.
The incident occurred late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, Hurricane City Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said.
“This is a complete act of disregard for property and respect for the community,” Buell said.
The graffiti, written with black spray paint, was found Tuesday morning at Hurricane Middle School, 395 N. 200 West, and at the neighboring Hurricane City Hall Park. Some of the graffiti was directed at law enforcement, Buell said.
“There was an explicit message towards the police,” he said.
Police are in the process of reviewing the school’s security camera footage and gathering other evidence.
“We will work diligently to find those who are responsible for committing this crime,” Buell said.
Washington County School District and Hurricane City Parks Department employees spent several hours Tuesday morning removing the graffiti.
Graffiti in Hurricane is not common, Buell said, but police do get a few cases each year in different areas of the city.
The Hurricane Police Department is asking the public for any information that can help identify the persons responsible for the graffiti.
Anyone who witnessed anything suspicious or has any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Hurricane City Police Department at 435-627-4999.
