There is vandlism in locust Street park again, as well as some homes that are located by alley ways off of North 5th St as well South 4th St. They all look like it's coming from the same person or persons.

Hopefully someone or one of the numerous cameras will see whoever it is and catch them. If caught, have them scrub the paint off as part of their punishment.
