Belfast police seek public’s help in graffiti vandalism case

By Abigail Curtis, BDN Staff

BELFAST, Maine — Police are trying to figure out who is responsible for recent graffiti vandalism on the city’s waterfront that has damaged public and private property, including a building owned by Front Street Shipyard.

The graffiti, or tagging, is criminal mischief, said Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham.

“We’ll take any help we can get,” he said Thursday.

So far, the tagging has been noticed on the pedestrian footbridge, in Belfast City Park and on some equipment that has been rented by Dubba LLC, the company constructing the shipyard.

J.B. Turner, the shipyard’s principal, said his big concern is that the company is now spending $100,000 to reside the building.

He has left a note for the vandals telling them in no uncertain terms to stay away, but after someone spray painted a rented shower stall on the property Wednesday night, he is taking further steps.

“I’ve got people looking into buying security cameras now so we can nab the little devils,” Turner said.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call the Belfast Police Department at 338-5255.
