Over the weekend of February 5th and 6th, Fort Morgan police responded to several vandalism incidents involving graffiti at locations between Riverside Park and South Elm Street and as far west as Barlow Road.
In all, there were at least six separate reports and victims included private residents, the school district, and the City of Fort Morgan. The costs to remove or paint over the graffiti came to approximately $765.
