SALEM — Police are looking for several vandals who have been spraying graffiti around town over the past two weeks.
Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten is asking for the public’s help in putting an end to the vandalism. Police have released photos of some of the graffiti, as well as a photo of what is allegedly a car involved in one of the incidents.
“The car was spotted behind the Haigh School on Saturday into Sunday, Oct. 20, at about 2:15 a.m.,” said Patten. “It appeared there may have been three occupants in the car.”
The graffiti includes the words “Bones 13” and “Native 13,” and the color choices so far have been orange and black.
“Some locations tagged have been the Haigh and Lancaster schools, the Santo building on Main Street, Salem Laundry on Main Street, a stonewall at Stonepost Road and School Street, the utility box at a four-way stop at School and Millville streets, the old Coke plant, the Route 111 sound barrier wall, bridge supports at Rockingham Park Boulevard, plus additional locations in Windham and Atkinson,” said Patten.
