Los Alamos police report that at approximately 9:27 a.m., Oct. 8, Ofc. Ben Irving was dispatched to Aspen Elementary School in reference to graffiti on multiple buildings.
Irving made contact with the reporting party at the school who stated that she came into work that morning and found graffiti on the “music” portable, “school office” portable and on the north door of room 120.
Photos were taken of the graffiti and attached to the case file, Irving stated in his report, adding that all of the graffiti was done with brown spray paint.
The north door of room 120 had a brown marijuana plant and the wording “WeeD 4:20” painted on it. The school office was already being painted over by a custodian when Irving looked at the graffiti on it. It appeared to say “RSD” and was on the north side of the school office. The music portable had a jagged “smiley face” and “HOOD” painted on it. The custodian said he saw a “smiley face” on the school office before he cleaned it off.
To the left of the music portable, there is a walkway that leads to Villa Street. Irving walked in that area and stated that he found more graffiti. The offender had sprayed a long line of brown paint, along a fence that ran the length of the walkway, in multiple places. He also found more brown spray paint graffiti on a stone parking enclosure in front of a residence at 3224-B Villa St.
Irving stated in his report that he attempted to make contact with the owner of the residence. There was no one home so he left his card with a message to call me. The graffiti on the enclosure appears to be similar to that found on the “school office” portable. The graffiti trail stops at 3224-B Villa St., Irving said. It appears that the graffiti began at Room 120, then went to the school office, followed by the music portable, the fence, and finally 3224-B Villa St.
Police have placed the case inactive pending further information.
