Sequim Police seek info on graffiti spree

Sequim Police Department continue to investigate a series of graffiti from late January, city officials report.

Sgt. Mike Hill said the department began receiving reports of taggings across the western/central portion of the City of Sequim the morning of Jan. 22.

“It was more than normal and all the incidents seemed similar,” he said. “We’re looking into it now and collected some security video.”

Some of the locations reported include Sequim Middle School, various businesses on the 1200 block of West Washington Street, multiple fences including by the intersection of North Fifth Avenue and Hendrickson Road, and The Vintage Apartments on Brackett Road.

Hill said the school received the most graffiti.

As of press time, the estimated cost of damages was businesses/homeowners’ removal costs, he said, with most of the paint applied to hard surfaces that could be cleaned.

With any information on the incidents, call Sequim Police Department at 360-683-7227.
