KHQ ON THE STREETS: Vandals Cover North Spokane Neighborhood With Graffiti

SPOKANE, Wash. - Local Law Enforcement is trying to track down whoever vandalized a north Spokane neighborhood after criminals marked it up with graffiti this weekend. Vandals sprayed mostly homes, garages and fences in the back alley of Glass Avenue and Lidgerwood Street with at least dozen or so cases spreading as far as Division Street, Liberty Avenue and Northwest Boulevard.

It's the latest tagging in 315 cases so far this year in Spokane, according to Eric Walker, Spokane County Sheriff's Graffiti Abatement Coordinator.

Walker estimated the criminals could have cost homeowners at least $100 or more for repairs depending on the type of property that was damaged.

It wasn't the first time homeowners in the area had been vandalized with graffiti. By Monday, they told KHQ that they were fed up. Victim Nathan Lane said, "I was mad. Our garage was actually the first one down this alley to be touched and I was pissed, like, I was mad. And then, we walked down the alley a couple of weeks later, everyone one of the garages got hit."

Walker said when the weather starts to warm up, local law enforcement tends to receive more graffiti reports. Right now, he said the city's on pace to have 1,200 graffiti cases this year, which would be the same as last year. However, he said patrols regularly check neighborhoods for graffiti.

According to the City of Spokane ordinance, 10.10.090, graffiti must be removed within 10 days. You can also search the Spokane website for ordinance.
