Sheridan police seeking spray paint artists
Date posted: March 20, 2014
SHERIDAN — The Sheridan police are looking for persons of interest who may be responsible for multiple incidents of graffiti in the last few months. The department has received seven reports of public and private property being spray painted overnight.
According to a press release from the SPD, each of the seven incidents in question involve the word “love” and an image that appears to be the face of a crying woman. One location targeted by the taggers is the train overpass that goes over South Sheridan Avenue, where “Love will set you free” is written in all capital letters.
Other incidents occurred in Kendrick Park and the Broadway Street business area.
While each of the seven acts of defacement appear to have a similar theme, numerous colors have been used in the graffiti, and it is possible more than one person was involved.
Police are encouraging anyone with information regarding these acts of vandalism to contact the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 67-CRIME. Information can also be submitted online at www.sheridancountycrimestoppers.org. Reports made to police regarding these incidents are confidental and may be worth a cash reward.
