Police Have Suspect in Capitol Building Graffiti Incident
Police say they’ve zeroed-in on the person who defaced the state Capitol building last week with spray paint.
Investigators aren’t releasing any information about the suspect yet. But they say it looks like only one person is to blame for two stick figures spray painted on the Capitol’s front columns, and a message reading “Give art a chance” on the back of a war memorial on the Capitol lawn.
State Police Lieutenant Kyle Bowman says there is still no arrest, but that should come soon.
“We’ll be submitting our portion of the report for our investigation to the Ingham County prosecutor’s office sometime this week,” he says.
Workers at the Capitol are still trying to remove the spray paint. They say the incident could cost taxpayers several thousand dollars.
