graff1Thanks to a citizen’s tip, Ephrata Police were finally able to identify two juveniles responsible for multiple incidents of graffiti in the Ephrata and Akron areas over the last month.

Police were notified March 14 of a white box truck that was parked in the Rail Trail parking lot on East Fulton Street that had just been spray painted with graffiti. Two juveniles were seen running from the area. They were located by police within minutes of the report in possession of spray paint and permanent markers.

The letters “SAJ” and “TREX” were attributed to these juveniles. They admitted to writing on exterior doors, bathrooms, trash cans, mailboxes, two box trucks and other public property. It is believed that most or all off this graffiti has been reported or accounted for.

If you believe that you are a victim of graffiti related to this case, contact Sgt. Randolph at 738-9200 ext 234. A total value of the damage has yet to be determined.
