Vandal Leaves Spray Painted Apology After Damaging 31 Cars In Mount Baker

A vandal who defaced 31 cars and damaged several homes in Mount Baker this morning apparently didn’t feel all that great about their handiwork, and left a not-terribly-meaningful apology during their crime spree. Screen Shot 2013-04-05 at 2.34.16 PM

At about 7:30 this morning, police received a report that several cars had been vandalized overnight near Mount St. Helens Place S. and S. McClellan Street.

When officers arrived, they found a one-mile trail of damage, stretching from Mt. St. Helens Place, down Cascadia Avenue S. to S. Dakota Street, ending near an elementary school.

The vandal (or vandals) left a series of paint blobs,messages—including homophobic epithets and “KKK”—scrawled in cursive, indecipherable symbols, and a crude picture of what might be the Seattle skyline on 31 cars, several garage doors and a retaining wall.

Officers documented the damage to all the cars they could find and left cards for the car owners.

The case has been forwarded to detectives for investigation.
