More graffiti at League City's Newport Park
For the second time this month, graffiti has been spray-painted on playground equipment at League City's Newport Park.
The latest incident at the park, 1013 Newport Blvd., occurred between Tuesday at 9 p.m. and Wednesday at 11 a.m., League City Police Sgt. John Jordan said. A city employee discovered Wednesday morning that playground equipment at the park had been spray-painted with black paint, but there were no legible words or pictures, he said.
The park's other graffiti this month was also on playground equipment. It was spray-painted with white paint between Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. and Feb. 3 at 8:30 a.m.
The city has had an epidemic of graffiti within the last month. Two teenagers have been charged in some of the incidents, but many others remain unsolved.
On Monday, the city discovered a racial slur spray-painted at Heritage Park, 524 N. Wisconsin Avenue. Because of the vandalism, city staff on Wednesday discussed the possible installation of surveillance cameras at city parks and facilities.
But police do not believe the latest graffiti at Newport Park is related to other cases of the vandalism because it lacked markings found in those incidents, Jordan said. There are no suspects in the incident, but police believe it was done by juveniles, he said.
They're just spray-painting stuff," Jordan said.
Because Newport Park is a popular hangout for youths, it is occasionally vandalized with graffiti, Jordan said.
It gets hit from time to time," he said.
Anyone with information about the graffiti at Newport Park or any other graffiti is asked to call 281-338-4182 or 281-338-8210.
