Vandals paint Wellington buildings with graffiti

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

WELLINGTON, Kan. -- Tom McAlister has been victimized by graffiti painting vandals before in Wellington and he doesn't get used to it.

"This is the third time I've been painted on," he says.

McAlister owns 14 properties in Wellington's downtown including his retail store called "The Roadway Show -- First Class Trash."

He says, "It's really kind of sad that they would deface somebody's property. We've worked hard to do the upkeep and things on these properties."

Wellington Police Detective Bobby Wilson says, "We had 20 reported buildings that's got some graffiti on them. We've got business owners. We've got people coming to work every day, hard working men and women. This is pretty much, more of a lack of respect than anything."

Police ask the public's help in identifying the graffiti painting vandals.
