The Park City Police Department last week received at least four reports of graffiti cases or other incidents involving spray paint.

The cases reported last week included:

  • on Sunday, July 20 at 12:39 p.m., a side and the top of a trailer were reportedly spray-painted somewhere along Ina Avenue.
  • on July 20 at 11:48 a.m., someone reported the rear license plate of a vehicle parked on American Saddler Drive was spray painted with black paint.
  • on Friday, July 18 at 3:58 p.m., graffiti was discovered on a cable box on Venus Court.
  • on July 18 at 11:27 a.m., a vehicle was reported to have been spray painted the night before on Ina Avenue.

Graffiti found in Park City is typically not related to gangs. Graffiti cases are normally classified as criminal mischief.

The Police Department in an online posting indicated the July 20 incident on Ina Avenue occurred overnight. The perpetrator "completely blacked out the license plate," the online posting said, adding that the case was linked to others. The online posting said police officers increased patrols in the vicinity in response to the cases.

In another online posting, the police provided details about the Ina Avenue case on July 18, saying "random lines" were painted on the side and the rear of the vehicle.

People with information about the cases may contact the Police Department at 615-5500 or the department’s anonymous-tip line, 615-5847. The department also offers an online tip form,
