Vail police investigate graffiti at Red Sandstone parking garage
The graffiti incident occurred on Sunday
On Friday, Aug. 20, a town of Vail employee reported graffiti on the Red Sandstone parking garage at 559 N. Frontage Road. The graffiti was located on the second level by the west end stairwell. The following was written on the wall in large letters: “NO1,” “1992” and “ONE 1992.”
After reviewing security camera footage, the pictured individual was recorded drawing the graffiti on Aug. 8. The subject is described as thin build, black shoulder length curly hair, black long-sleeve undershirt, blue button-down shirt, black pants, black shoes and wearing a camouflage backpack.
Just last week, a Bridge Street business owner also noticed some graffiti on her establishment. She told the Vail Daily that this was the first graffiti incident on the building to occur in its long local history.
According to an email from Vail Police Commander Ryan Kennedy, the town typically sees “so little graffiti that any graffiti is an increase.”
Since July 1, the Vail Police Department has had three reports of “graffiti” in the town, Kennedy wrote.
