COLUMBUS – Columbus Police received reports of 3 separate areas being tagged with graffiti over the weekend.

Columbus Police say the back-alley wall of a business in downtown Columbus, located off the 2900 block of 13th Street was spray painted. CPD Captain Todd Thalken says there was two different colors of graffiti, and the markings indicated that it was tagged on two separate occasions. Similar to the graffiti that was found on the east wall of 1C Church.  The wall was believed to be spray painted overnight Friday.

A second area that was spray painted, included two self storage units on the westside of 3rd Avenue, just north of 19th Street. An officer found the spray paint while on routine patrol Saturday, says Thalken.

The east wall of 1C Church has been tagged with graffiti multiple times this year

A third incident was reported at the Pawnee Park underpass, near the Higgins Memorial, where graffiti was spray painted on the walls of the tunnel. Thalken says it is possible that this criminal mischief took place Friday night into Saturday as well, but says they do not know the exact time when it occurred.

Thalken says if anyone sees someone attempting to spray paint area property, or has information dealing with these three incidents, CPD encourage them to contact the office at 402-564-3201.
