Officer Mike Badger, for Crime Stoppers of Sangamon and Menard counties.
Police have taken several reports of unknown persons spray painting graffiti images and symbols on several buildings and vehicles in the Springfield area in the past few weeks and Crime Stoppers hopes your tips will lead to the identification of the culprit. Graffiti is an age old form of vandalism that debases the aesthetics of an area and contributes to a decline in any community in which it presents itself. It also creates a burden on individual victims and neighborhood residents who are forced to spend their time and money in cleanup efforts to erase the damage caused by those who engage in this criminal public nuisance.
If you have any information about who is responsible for spray painting vandalism, call the Crime Stopper tip line at 788-8427 and Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward if your information leads to an arrest. You can also leave a tip using this website or text a tip by using the keyword TIP672, entering your tip information, and sending it to CRIMES. Help us and earn a cash reward.
