GROSSMONT COLLEGE-Graffiti is being found on campus inside random restrooms. Campus Police Supervising Officer Dave Peralto says he doesn’t believe its gang related–he thinks its just a tagger.

Someone has has vandalized both male and female restrooms with graffiti.  It is unclear whether it is the same person or people.

I interviewed a few fellow students,  as a result…about half really didn’t care the other half were strongly against it. I asked maintenance how often are they having to remove it and they said a few times a week. They are cleaning it up as quickly as possible.

The quicker they have it removed the less the tagger will tag, said Officer Peralto, who stated that the longer graffiti are left up on the walls or stalls, the more it will occur.
