LEBANON, Ind. (WISH) - Police in Lebanon have launched an investigation into who vandalized eight community buildings and businesses.
The letters "B," and backwards "J" along with other symbols and words were discovered in black spray paint on the properties early Saturday.
Landmarks including the Boone County courthouse and the Lebanon Public Library were included on the list of victims.
Police Chief Sam Myers said his department continued to follow leads Tuesday and gather several pieces of surveillance footage from the various storefronts affected. The detective working the case was confident a suspect would be caught, Myers said.
Disappointment and anger were just a few of the emotions Kay Martin shared with her community. The director for the city's public library said the graffiti scrawled on the building's limestone pillars broke her heart.
"Why in the world would somebody want to do that," Martin questioned. "It is really bad. This is a beautiful building."
Some of the businesses affected had tried to remove or at least cover the vandalism by Tuesday. Martin said the library must work with insurance and research removal options before tackling the tags on its property.
