The Jamestown Police Department is investigating a series of “hateful” messages written in spray paint disparaging law enforcement.

The messages are believed to have been written between 8 p.m. Tuesday and 8:15 a.m. Wednesday on both the street and private walkway near an Arlington Avenue home. In a news release, JPD said the black spray paint was used to “write several anti-law enforcement sentiments onto a walkway” that had a police flag displayed.

“My office has been made aware of hateful spray paint activity at an Arlington Avenue property,” Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist said. “We don’t condone this type of activity. We’ve been working with local community justice groups and the police to make sure their voices are heard and that we are working together to bring positive change to the city. We encourage open and productive dialogue and not this kind of activity. Anyone who may have information related to this incident is asked to contact the Jamestown Police Department.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Jamestown police at 483-7537, the anonymous Tips Line at 483-Tips (8477) or via the Tips 411 App.
