CHOCTAW, Okla. - Police said some residents in Choctaw woke up to graffiti spray painted on their homes and vehicles Thursday morning.
"We located about four different locations that have graffiti on the garage doors and some on the vehicles,” said Choctaw Police Chief Conny Clay. "The way it looks is entirely random. Some people probably don't even know that they're victims yet, because they haven't gotten home and saw it."
It may be easier to miss before sunrise, which is exactly when police believe whoever vandalized the area went to work on the homes and vehicles.
A new coat of paint or two may be all that is needed for garage doors, but vehicles may need a different approach to remove the paint, including buffing or clay bar that is sold at most auto supply stores.
"And, it's actual clay that you can mold, and it's used on anything that's on the surface of the paint without damaging the paint itself,” said Jeremiah Graham of Jeremiah’s CarStar Collision. "It takes some elbow grease and a little bit of time, but it can in fact remove the over spray without harming the paint on the vehicle."
Police are hoping surveillance video captured images of the suspects.
If caught, they face misdemeanor charges of vandalism.
