Hi Ho Silver! Elmhurst Serial Spray-Painter Strikes Again
Can anybody stop this guy?
This time, police discovered the vandalism on Willow Road.
"While on patrol (an officer) observed a City of Elmhurst electrical box at 225 Willow with (redacted) spray-painted in silver spray paint," police said.
"The same type markings have been found in several other areas near this address," police said. "Neighborhood interviews were conducted, with negative response."
Yesterday, the police reported that an "unknown person spray-painted the letters (redacted) in silver spray-paint on the 'Cross Traffic Does Not Stop' sign located on the corner of Willow and Columbia."
Somebody must have caught a glimpse of the graffiti mystery man that time, as the police said he was driving a red Dodge Durango.
Previously, the Elmhurst police reported silver words were spray-painted on a fence near the corner of Columbia Avenue and Willow Road and a pedestrian underpass at North and Emroy avenues.
Elmhurst Deputy Police Chief Dominic Panico wants to keep the silver words under wraps, according to an email sent from the department.
"Per Deputy Chief Panico, the details in grafitti incidents will not be released," the email said.
Patch has requested the police department provide the reports detailing the incidents of vandalism.
