Kids tag Central neighborhood
CENTRAL - Neighbors said children responsible for spray painting dozens of mailboxes, street signs, bikes, and yard decorations have been going door to door apologizing for their actions.
Residents living along Sugar Pine Dr and other nearby streets woke up Monday morning to find their property vandalized. Mailboxes and items left in yards overnight like bicycles were tagged in various colors. In some areas, street signs were painted.
At Stephen Phillips' house, only one item in his yard was targeted.
"It looks like just the mailbox, they spray-painted the tops the sides and the front," he said as he worked to clean the paint off of it Monday afternoon.
A Facebook page used by Central residents showed pictures of painted items. Many fear the damage could be worse if the vandals were to strike again.
"I know a couple neighbors," said Phillips, "who are going to stay vigilant and stay outside at night for a little while to watch for any activity."
