Whitefish Bay police are asking for residents' help to stop a graffiti spree that has damaged village property over the last week.
Numerous graffiti tags have been found in the Klode Park restroom, Klode Park playground equipment, Silver Spring Park, the library restroom, a fire hydrant in the 5900 block of Shoreland Avenue and the athletic bleachers at Whitefish Bay High School.
Whitefish Bay police believe the graffiti is caused by a "tagger," which means the vandal marks objects with their identifying initials. In this case, the vandal's tagging identity appears to be "REV 1" and "AMMO."
Whitefish Bay Police Community Liaison Officer David Hryniewicki is investigating the graffiti and is in contact with law enforcement agencies in the area to discover the identity of the vandal.
The Whitefish Bay Police Department is asking parents to talk with their children to help discover the identity of the vandal.
"We want to apprehend the individual or individuals responsible before more damage occurs and before more taxpayer dollars are used in removing the criminal damage," village officials stated in an email newsletter.
If you have information regarding the identity of the graffiti vandal, please call the Whitefish Bay Police Department at 414-962-3830. If you see somebody in the act of committing vandalism, please contact dispatch at 414-351-900.
