Spray painting spree leaves trail of vandalism in Livonia

Vandals defaced a Livonia neighborhood using black spray paint on everything from street signs to houses.

Police say a witness reported seeing two teenage girls between the ages of 14 and 15 spray painting the graffiti Thursday morning. 

"We're looking for help," said Lt. Tom Garalski. "If any one knows who they are we like to know so we can talk to them."

Resident Mark Hulbert found one of his cars vandalized with spray paint.

"I'm just upset because it's people's property," he said. "We work hard."

Valerie Skowronek said she found "(expletive) you" in graffiti on her house when she left to take her son to school. 

They weren't the only victims - street signs and fences were vandalized with profanities.

This resident was not a victim, but felt compelled to help his neighbors cleanup.

"I just don't want neighborhood looking trashy," she said.

Concerned residents say they want police to investigate and the people responsible should get the punishment they deserve.

"Whatever it takes if it takes restitution or working they need to understand what they did is wrong."
