Police probe graffiti activity

Evanston police say some of the graffiti tagging that marked up structures in south Evanston on Wednesday and Thursday appears related to a tagging problem that flares up sporadically rather than being gang-related markings.

Vandals used spray paint to mark up a train right-of-way at Washington Street and Custer Avenue, the common area of a condominium on the 700 block of Custer, a municipal parking lot on the 700 block of Chicago Avenue and a train right-of-way, in incidents reported for Thursday.

Graffiti was also discovered at a train depot on the 800 block of Chicago on the previous day.

One message, written in spray paint, said, “Be Kind.”

Another made reference to a psychedelic drug. Police are investigating.
