BANGOR, Maine — Two young men responsible for spray-painting walls of the 14th Street School on Monday will be facing charges in the near future, according to police.

The male suspects, a 21-year-old from Portland and a 19-year-old from Bangor, spray-painted large areas of the brick walls in the early morning hours of Memorial Day, according to Sgt. Paul Edwards.

The suspects painted symbols such as “C-RSI, PIPSLEEP, SLEEP, KAF,” an image of a pentagram and another of a duck with a cone hat, the sergeant said.

School surveillance cameras caught the perpetrators in the act, and thanks to phone calls from the suspects themselves, in addition to anonymous tips from the public, police have found the culprits, according to Edwards.

The sergeant said both suspects “will be formally charged in the very near future,” but did not disclose any other details.
